This study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary chitosan on growth performance, hematological parameters, intestinal histology, stress resistance and body composition in the Caspian kutum (Rutilus frisii kutum, Kamenskii, 1901) fingerlings. Fish (1.7 ± 0.15 g) were fed diets containing chitosan at different levels (0, 0.25, 0.5, 1 and 2 g(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effects of vitamin C (vitC) on the growth, skeletal abnormalities (vertebral column and lack of operculum), blood biochemical parameters, haematocrit, survival and resistance to salinity stress in common carp fry (0.5 ± 0.08 g). Fish were fed diets containing vitC at different levels: 0 (control), 50, 100 and 1000 mg(More)
