This study was carried out to investigate and compare the effect of water-soluble polysaccharides extract of the green alga, Ulva rigida (WPU), as a dietary supplement on growth performance, antioxidant enzyme activity, non-specific immune responses, and disease resistance of juvenile grey mullet, Mugil cephalus, subjected to bacterial infection with Photobacterium damselae. Three replicate groups of fish (initial mean weight, 15 ± 0.1 g) were fed with four isonitrogenous and isolipidic diets… CONTINUE READING
