Emblica officinalis, is also known as amla, has been used in Ayurveda, the ancient system of Indian medicine. Amla has been used for curing many disorders such as common cold, scurvy, cancer and heart diseases in humans. It is supposed that the major factor responsible for all these curing activities is Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid), which is contained in large proportion in the pulp of amla. The present study was conducted to study the effect of different concentrations of amla as a feed additive on the hematology and serum biochemical parameters of Rohu (Labeo rohita) fingerlings. Four experimental diets, T0, T1, T2 and T3, were prepared with dried amla powder as a feed additive mixed @ 0% (Control), 1%, 5% and 10% of feed, respectively. The results showed that the haematological and serum biochemical parameters were better in all the fishes fed with T3 (10% dried amla per kg feed) in respect to length, weight, F.C.R., F.C.E., S.G.R., condition factor, survival rate and weight gain. All the results obtained were also statistically checked and found to be significant (P > 0.05).
