Potential use of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides as a feed supplement in diets on survival and growth performance of the grass carp, Ctenopharyngodon idella


Author(s): E Chithra, AM Padmanaban and K Mohan

Abstract: The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of dietary Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides (GLPs) on the survival and growth performance of the freshwater fish, Ctenopharyngodon idella. C. idella juveniles were fed diet containing 0 (control), 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 g kg-1 of GLPs supplemented diets for a period of 60 days. The sampling was made at 15 days interval (after 15th, 30th, 45th, and 60 days of feeding trial) to analyze the growth parameters and the results showed that the survival, weight gain, length gain, feed intake and specific growth rate were found to be significantly (P<0.05) higher in 0.1-1.0 g kg-1 of GLPs supplemented diets when compared to control in all samplings days. The feed conversion ratio was found to be significantly decreased in fish fed with 0.1-1.0 g GLPs kg−1supplemented diets when compared to control feed fed fish group. Hence, present study suggests that 1.0 g kg-1 GLPs can be taken as a dietary supplement for regulating better production of C. idella.
