Giant freshwater prawns Macrobrachium rosenbergii (14-19 g) were challenged with Enterococcus (3 x 10(5) cfu prawn(-1)) previously incubated in TSB medium for 24 h, then placed in water having concentrations of dissolved oxygen (DO) at 7.75, 4.75, 2.75 and 1.75 mg l(-1). Onset of mortality occurred after 6 h exposure to 1.75 mg l(-1) DO, and after 12 h exposure to 2.75 mg 1(-1) DO. Cumulative mortality of prawns at 1.75 mg l(-1) DO was significantly higher than that at 4.75 and 2.75 mg l(-1) DO… CONTINUE READING
