Effects of dietary vitamin C on growth, caudal fin development, and tolerance of aquaculture-related stressors in channel catfish

Effects of dietary vitamin C on growth, caudal fin development, and tolerance of aquaculture-related stressors in channel catfish

Progressive Fish-Culturist, 491: 13-16

The effects of dietary vitamin C on growth, caudal fin development, and stress tolerence of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) were investigated by feeding fry diets containing either 0, 78, or 390 mg vitamin C/kg feed for 120 days. Catfish fed a vitamin C-free diet grew less, had a higher incidence of caudal fin malformations, a lower tolerance of ammonia, and died of hypoxia at higher dissolved oxygen levels than the fish fed the diets containing medium or high levels of vitamin C.
