Prevention of acute ammonia toxicity in bluga (Huso huso), using natural zeolite

The research was accomplished in order to study the efficiency of natural zeolite to prevent acute toxicity of ammonia on Huso huso. The study was performed using Water static method for 96 h. Fish with average weight 46 ± 5 g and total length 22 ± 4 cm were exposed to four different concentrations (15, 30, 50, 75 mg L-1) of ammonia salt. A group of fish was considered as control.
