Abstract

The knowledge of the haematological characteristics is an important tool that can be used as an effective and sensitive index to monitor physiological and pathological changes in fishes. These parameters are also closely related to the response of the animal to the environment, an indication that the environment where fish lives could exert some influence on the blood characteristics.  The supplementation of 1% Spirulina, 1% soyabean and  1% combined diet (1% Spirulina and soyabean) on haematological status in Catla catla. An experiment was conducted to determine the haematological role of Indian Major Carp Catla catla, fingerlings for period of 90 days.There were significant differences between the blood parameters (haemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV), red blood cells (RBC), RBC indices (Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH) and Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) and white blood cells (WBC). The present investigation shows that incorporation of a soyabean and spirulina in diets for common carp results in increased haematological performance. Among the various diet, combined diet at 1% concentration produced the best and statistically significant (p<0.05) in haematological parameters RBC (1.27±0.07), WBC (6800±421.6), Hb (5.21±0.35), PCV (15.12±1.02), MCV (121.19±0.81), MCH (42.01±2.85) and MCHC (34.45±2.34) compared to other diets and control.
