Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of VitaSil medicine on meat and some biochemical parameters of common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.). Two hundred and forty carp were randomly allocated into three groups A, B and C. Fish were induced obesity by feeding with high fat diet for 9 months. Simultaneously fish were treated with VitaSil medicine in dose 50g/kg. Blood samples were taken at the 3rd month and 9th month in order to evaluate cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations. At the end of study six fish from each of the groups were slaughtered and proximate composition of meat were determined.
