Abstract

This study investigated the impacts of various levels (0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 g kg-1) of dietary ferula (Ferula asafoetida) powder (FP) on the hemato-immunological indices, antibacterial properties of skin mucus, survival rate and growth performance as well as digestive enzymes activity of Koi carp, Cyprinus carpio koi, fingerlings. Following 63 days of feeding trail, WBCs, RBCs, Hb, hematocrit, MCV, MCH, MCHC and lymphocyte levels increased coincident with increasing FP level in experimental diets compared to control diet (P<0.05). Dietary FP significantly increased total protein content and the activities of total immunoglobulins, lysozyme, alternative hemolytic complement in a concentration-dependent manner in the serum of koi fish (P<0.05). The elevation of FP level in experimental diets resulted in an increase in SGR value and a reduction in FCR value (P<0.05). The survival rate also increased significantly coincident with increasing dietary FP level (P<0.05). The results revealed that dietary ferula powder especially at levels of 20 and 25 g kg-1 could be used as an effective herbal dietary supplement in the enhancement of humoral innate immune responses and growth of koi carp.
