In this study, 360 Oreochromis niloticus were cultured in 12 aquaria for 3 months at different concentrations of camphor oil Cinnamomum camphora (1%, 3% and 5%). The aquaria were divided into 4 groups which were control group (CG), treatment 1 (T1), treatment 2 (T2) and treatment 3 (T3). Each treatment was replicated 3 times and each replicate contained 30 pieces of the tilapia. Water parameters consisting of temperature, pH, ammonia and dissolved oxygen were measured every 2 weeks throughout the culture period. Fish sampling were also done throughout the culture period in once per 2 weeks interval for fish weight and fish mortality. Data collected were analyzed using SAS computer software. The results showed that higher concentrations of camphor (3 and 5%) increased the immune response of the fish towards diseases that is related with bacterial infection.Pages: 337-340 | 1276 Views 74 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
