ABSTRACT

 

Adloo MN, Soltanian S, Hafeziyeh M, Ghadimi N., Dose-response effect of β-Glucan supplement on growth, survival and blood parameters in juvenile striped catfish (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus, Onl J Vet Res., 24 (6):371-382, 2020. Groups of 35 Juvenile striped catfish (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus) each, were fed in tanks diets supplemented with 0, 0.5, 1 or 2% β-Glucan. Fish were taken from each tank for determination of serum lysozyme, total protein, glucose, survival and growth. Compared with controls, we found no significant differences in growth, survival or glucose values between any group. However, serum lysozyme was higher in fish fed 0.5% β-glucan (10.8 ug/ml serum) compared with controls (8.00 g/ml serum), and blood protein levels increased in all fish given β-glucan supplementation.

 

Keywords: β-Glucan, Pangasianodon hypophthalmus, physiological responses.
