Influence of cadmium toxicity and organic feeds on growth performance of fresh water fish Labeo rohita (Hamilton, 1822)
Sivabalan V, Aruldoss K
A freshwater fish Labeo rohita were collected and treated from commercial fish farms in and around Cudalore from June 2019 to October 2019. The fishes were fed with control and experimental diet and growth performance such as ABW, ABL, body weight gain and specific growth rate were thoroughly studied adopting standard procedures. The result indicating that there was significant variation in growth parameters of control and experimental diet. The fish fed with live feed organism mixed diet have higher increment in body weight, length, weight gain and specific growth rate and cadmium treated fishes stunted the growth and infected the tissue organisms. The study reveals the fact that the aqua feed with live organism is more suitable for fish culture practice and heave metals are very dangerous for fish and environments.
