The objectives of this study were to determine the optimum concentration and time of vitamin C application that could effectively enhance the immune system of black tiger shrimp (P. monodon). Shrimp with an average weight of 10.0+or-2.1 g were fed with feed containing four different concentrations of vitamin C (Na/Ca-ascorbyl-2-monophosphate) at 0, 1, 3 and 5 g/kg of feed. They were fed four times a day for 14 days and immune parameters were statistically compared at p=0.05.
