Impact of dietary Livol on the growth, biochemical composition and gut digestive enzyme activity of catla (Catla catla) (Hamilton)



Impact of dietary Livol on the growth, biochemical composition and gut digestive enzyme activity of catla (Catla catla) (Hamilton)



Journal of Aquaculture in the Tropics 17(1): 35-42



The effectiveness of Livol for growth promotion in Catla (Catla catla), was evaluated through dietary administration of three different dosages (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5%) for 120 days. Livol-treated groups of fish showed higher weight gain than control. The use of Livol at 0.5% resulted in higher weight gain than rest of the treatments. Feed conversion efficiency, protein efficiency ratio, carcass protein content and RNA/DNA ratio, was high under fish fed 0.5% Livol-supplemented diets. Incorporation of Livol at varied levels improved the gut digestive enzyme activity of treated fish.
