Abstract:
Garlic contains crucial bioactive components and study on garlic concluded it as growth promoters, antioxidants, antimicrobial and improved digestibility and caraccas composition of fish. To evaluate the effect of garlic on growth, survival, feed utilization and proximate composition of Pangasianodon hypophthalmus this study was conducted using three doses (1, 2 and 3%) of garlic powder (GP) incorporated diets. P. hypophthalmus fry of initial size 85.20 ±0.84 mm and 5.47 ±0.30 g was reared in PVC plastic cages of size (2m x 1m x 1.2m) with density 240 numbers per cage using GP incorporated basal diets and basal diet without GP for 180 days. Significantly higher (P<0.05) final length, final weight, average daily gain (ADG), SGR, survival, yield, FCE, PER, APR, ALR and CP were observed in GP2% treated groups whereas the same group showed lower (P<0.05) FCR, VSI, HSI and body fat content. The present study revealed that dietary inclusion of GP2% can improve growth, feed utilization and flesh quality of P. hypophthalmus.
