ABSTRACT

The present investigation deals with a study on the effects of water PH changes in relation to various haematological parameters. The findings revealed that culturing of  G.filamentosus in water of poor quality especially of extreme pH values could results in poor growth and high mortality.Hence, water pH should be properly monitored in aquaculture practices.

Key Words: G. filamentosus, pH, haematological parameters, mortality.
