The major hindrance in the development and sustainability of aquaculture industry is the occurrence of various diseases in the farming systems. Today, preventive and management measures are central concern to overcome such outbreak of diseases. Immunostimulants are considered as an effective tool for enhancing immune status of cultured organisms. Among(More)
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of sub-lethal nitrite exposure on sex steroids (testosterone and estradiol), cortisol and thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) of Labeo rohita juveniles. Fishes previously fed with normal or elevated levels of vitamin E (VE) and tryptophan for 60 days were exposed to sub-lethal nitrite for another 45 days with same(More)
Histomorphological changes in digestive tract of golden mahseer (Tor putitora) were examined in larvae [starting from hatching to 45 days post-hatching (dph)], fry, fingerling, and adult. Digestive tract appeared during hatching, on the dorsal side of yolk sac, as a straight tube with a narrow lumen. Mouth opening and appearance of liver and pancreas were(More)
The study aimed to assess the effects of sex and season on hematological and serum biochemical indices of Barilius bendelisis. Hematological and biochemical results showed significant differences (p < 0.05) among seasons as well as between sexes. In summer, hemoglobin, hematocrit, erythrocyte and WBC number were highest and significantly (p < 0.05)(More)
An experiment was conducted to delineate the effect of heat shock and chlorine on the biochemical responses of Labeo rohita spawns for evaluating acquired thermal tolerance. Spawns were equally distributed in three different groups i.e., group 1 heat shock (37 °C) without chlorine, group 2 heat shock (37 °C) in chlorinated water and group 3 control in(More)
Effect of dietary zinc on growth, survival and physiological responses of Tor putitora fry was investigated. A 60-day experiment was conducted with 1,800 fry (avg. wt 54.35 ± 3.09 mg) of golden mahseer distributed randomly among six treatments in triplicate. Six isonitrogenous semi-purified diets were prepared with graded levels of zinc (0, 10, 20, 40, 60(More)

Proteins and amino acids are important biomolecules which regulate key metabolic pathways and serve as precursors for synthesis of biologically important substances; moreover, amino acids are building blocks of proteins. Fish is an important dietary source of quality animal proteins and amino acids and play important role in human nutrition. In the present(More)
A 30-day acclimation trial was conducted using Tor putitora to elucidate its thermal tolerance, oxygen consumption, haemato-biochemical variables and selected enzymatic activities at five acclimation temperatures (AT). Juveniles of T. putitora were randomly distributed among five treatment groups (20, 23, 26, 29 and 32 ± 0.5 °C). There was a significant(More)
