Protective role of dietary Spirulina platensis on oxygen consumption in Labeo rohita exposed to sublethal concentration of mercuric chloride


Author(s): Dr. AD Shelke and Dr. GP Wani

Abstract: The current study was designed to investigate the protective role of dietary Spirulina platensis on oxygen consumption of freshwater fish, Labeo rohita. The fish were divided in to six groups of 10 individuals each and were exposed to 0.12 ppm. (50% 96h LC50 value) of mercuric chloride for 21 days. The results showed that sublethal exposure of Labeo rohita fed with Spirulina platensis free diet (T1 groups) significantly decline in rate of oxygen consumption than those exposed to sublethal level of Mercuric chloride and fed Spirulina platensis supplementation diet (T2- T5 groups).
