Comparative study of testis histology and haematology of Clarias gariepinus exposed to phytochemicals of Moringa oleifera and Carica papaya leaf powder


Author(s): George ADI, Uedeme-Naa B and Okon MA

Abstract: This work was carried out to know the responses of Clarias gariepinus broodfish testis and blood when exposed to varied levels (0.50, 1.00, 1.50 and 2.00g/l) of Moringa oleifera and Carica papaya leaves powder for 8 weeks in a renewable bioassay. Results showed that temperature, nitrite and pH were within the same range with no significant difference (P>0.05). There was significance difference (P<0.05) between some blood parameters; RBC, platelets, Hb, while data from the rest showed no significant difference (P>0.05). Moringa had the highest value in RBC and Hb, while C. papaya had the highest value in WBC. Analysis on the Gonadosomatic index showed significance difference (P<0.05) with Moringa having the highest value (0.19±0.008) and while C. papaya and control showed no significance difference (P>0.05). There was no significance difference (P>0.05) in the condition factor but the values indicate a favourable condition for the fish as it was greater than 2. Histological analysis had no difference in testicular structure between the treatments as compared with the control.
