Abstract:
This study investigates the histological changes of kidney and liver of Clarias gariepinus fed diets containing Chrysophyllum albidum as maize replacer. Five isonitrogenous diets containing maize which was replaced by Chrysophyllum albidum at a rate of 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% were made. The diets without Chrysophyllum albidum seedmeal served as the control. The diets were isonitrogenous and isolipidic. Experimental diets were assigned randomly to the tanks and each group of fish was fed 5% body weight in equal proportion per day. The results of this study showed that there was a marked vacuolation of hepatocytes among the treatments after the experiment which is not dietary treatment related. The experiment showed that it is technically feasible to replace maize with Chrysophyllum albidum seedmeal in the diet of Clarias gariepinus without adverse effect on the histology of kidney and liver.
