Hematological Parameters and Erythrocyte Osmotic Fragility in Rainbow Trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, Experimentally Infected with Pseudomonas putida

S. Bektas and O. Ayik

Abstract:
In the present study, selected hematological and osmotic fragility values in rainbow trout, following experimental Pseudomonas putida infection have been described. Blood samples were collected at day, 1, 3, 7, 14 and 21 post inoculation and examined for the above parameters. Erythrocyte values were significantly decreased at all days. Hematocrit values at day 14 was significantly higher than other days. Hemoglobin values revealed significant decrease from day first onwards. Among red blood cell indices, MCV were found significantly higher from day 1 to 21. Significant decrease in MCHC were also reported. MCH remain unchanged in all days examined. Leukocyte values at day 21 were significantly higher than at day 7. In addition, thrombocytes values at day 21 were significantly higher than at day 7 and 14 . On the other hand, erythrocyte osmotic fragility values were significantly increased at day 14 and 21 post infection. Interpreted hematological data in the present study, can be used to assess an abnormality or disease process in pseudomonas infected rainbow trout.
