Abstract:

The present study evaluated the effect of different substrate based biofloc technology (BFT) application on water quality and Hematological Parameters of Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus for 60 day’s indoor experiment at Wet Laboratory of the Department of Aquaculture, College of Fishery Science, Muthukur. The results indicated that tilapia reared in different substrate based biofloc treatment showed significantly (p<0.05) higher performance, than the control (without biofloc and substrate). At the end of the study period blood and serum samples were collected for the evaluation of haematological parameters. Increased levels of haematological parameters viz., total RBC, WBC, Platelet count, Hb, HCT, MCV, MCH and MCHC were observed in Nile tilapia fingerlings reared in different substrate based biofloc and biofloc treatments than that of control. Among treatments, biofloc + bamboo mat substrate (T2) treatment has shown better haematological response.
