Growth response and ionic regulation in common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) after chronic dietary copper exposure and recovery

  Effects of exposure of common carp juveniles (Cyprinus carpio L.) to dietary copper and its recovery rate were investigated with the aim of determining the growth and physiological impact. The fish were fed elevated copper diets (1000 and 2000 mgCukg-1 as diet 2 and diet 3 respectively) and control diet (5 mgCukg-,  as diet 1) for 42days and were then fed the control diet for a further...

Effect of dietary protein, lipid and carbohydrate contents on the liver composition and enzyme activity of Cyprinus carpio communis fingerlings

  This study aimed to determine a feed formulation with best protein to energy ratio which would result in better liver composition and enzyme activity of Cyprinus carpio communis. Fingerlings having average weight 1.64 g ± 0.13 and length 5.26 ± 0.10 cm were fed on four different formulated feeds and a control feed (each in a triplicate set), 6% of their body weight, three times a day,...
