Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the efficacy of clove oil as an anesthetic for common carp. The different doses of clove oil (0.04, 0.05, 0.06, 0.07 & 0.08 ppm) were used in static waters. The highest (15.10 min) and lowest (2.20 min) induction time were noticed at the dose of 0.04 and 0.08 ppm respectively. The induction time significantly (p<0.05) decreased with increasing concentration of clove oil. The respective highest (7.10 min) and lowest (0.58 min) recovery times of clove oil were observed at the dose of 0.08 and 0.04 ppm. The metabolic activity (OCR, COR, RQ and AQ) in clove oil anesthetized common carp showed a significant (p<0.05) reduction. Still the highest rate of metabolic activity reduction was in higher dose of 0.08 ppm clove oil treated fish than other treatments.
