The present research was aimed to study the effects of different sources of carotenoids and their varying concentrations on the reproductive functions of goldfish. The study was carried out in seven treatments with three replicates at the Bony Fish Hatchery Complex (Rasht, Iran) from December 2011 to May 2012. Experimental diets containing 50, 100, and 150 mg kg-1 astaxanthin and 50, 100, and 150 mg kg-1 βcaroten along with a carotenoid free basic carp feed as control were utilized. The… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effect of dietary astaxanthin on reproductive performance, egg quality and larvae of clowfish Amphiprion ocellaris (Cuvier, 1830)
TLDR
The results suggested that astaxanthin requirement for clownfish broodstock to improve reproductive performance was 150 mg/kg feed.
Effects of dietary astaxanthin and β-carotene on gonadosomatic and hepatosomatic indices, gonad and liver composition in goldfish Carassius auratus (Linnaeus, 1758) broodstocks
TLDR
It is found that diets containing higher levels of astaxanthin and β-carotene improve the GSI in goldfish broodstock.
Dietary Effects of Carotenoid on Growth Performance and Pigmentation in Bighead Catfish (Clarias macrocephalus Günther, 1864)
This study investigates the effects of supplemental carotenoid pigments on growth and color performance in bighead catfish (Clarias macrocephalus). Two experiments were undertaken to determine the
Effect of different maturation diets on reproductive performance of the broodstock of purple mangrove crab, Scylla tranquebarica
TLDR
Broodstock fed FA+D diet had the highest hatching rate, number of larvae produced and significantly higher zoea II survival compared to FCon and NF groups (P) and diet FD resulted in better performance than FA.
Optimizing the Growth, Health, Reproductive Performance, and Gonadal Histology of Broodstock Fantail Goldfish (Carassius auratus, L.) by Dietary Cacao Bean Meal
TLDR
It is suggested that cacao bean meal can be used as a feed supplement in diets of broodstock fantail goldfish for improving the growth, health status, blood biochemical parameters, antioxidant, immune status, physiological parameters, female reproductive performance, economic efficiency, and gonadal histological structure.
Biological and Health impact of Astaxanthin powders in common carp Cyprinus
TLDR
It is found that diets containing higher levels of Astaxanthin powders improve the growth performance, biological and GSI in common carp Cyprinus carpio L.

TLDR
The bioactive and molecular foundations of the action of carotenoids and retinoids that actively participate during the process of nuclear signalling and diierentiation of the oocyte are discussed, considering these compounds as essential nutritional additives during gonadic maturation.
