This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of gossypol levels on growth performance, body composition, hematology, immune response and resistance of channel catfish to Edwadsiella ictaluri challenge. A purified basal diet supplemented with 0, 300, 600, 900, 1200 and 1500 mg of gossypol from gossypol–acetic acid was fed to juvenile channel catfish in quadruplicate aquaria to apparent satiation twice daily for 12 weeks. Final weight gain was inversely related to the concentration of dietary… CONTINUE READING
