This study aimed to determine the effects of different levels of prebiotic Mito
(MHF-Y) on growth, survival, carcass composition and some hematological parameters
in common carp fry( 6.5 ± 0.5 g) within 60 days. The experiment was designed with four
treatments (zero, 1, 2, and 3 g of prebiotic per kg diet). The highest final weight was found
in fry treated with 2 g/kg of prebiotic and the lowest value recorded in the control. The
fry of carp fed 2 g/kg of prebiotic Mito showed the highest values of specific growth rate,
condition factor and net fish production in comparison with those in fed the control group.
Also, the FCR level was lowest in fish fed 2.0 g/kg of prebiotic Mito. The mortality rate
of carp fry was zero in all treatments. There were no significant differences between body
protein and fat in fish fed with different levels of prebiotic and the control (P > 0.05). The
number of red blood cells showed significant differences between the control and the
other groups (P < 0.05). The highest numbers were seen in fish fed 2.0 g/kg of prebiotic.
The number of white blood cells showed insignificant differences between treatments
(P > 0.05). Hemoglobin and haematocrit values significantly differed between 2 and 3 g
treatments and control (P < 0.05). The results show that the addition of 2 g/kg of prebiotic
Mito in the diet of carp fry can be used as an appropriate dietary complement for common
