Abstract

Methanol extract of Morus alba Foliage (MFE) was studied to evaluate its effect on hematological parameters and liver histology of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus). The trial consisted of five diets preparation, i.e., control diet (diet 1) and four tested diets supplemented, respectively with 2 g MFE kg-1 (MFE-2), 5 g MFE kg-1 (MFE -5), 7 g MFE kg-1 (MFE -7) and 9 g MFE kg-1 (MFE -9) of Dry Matter (DM) diet. Results showed fish fed with MFE-5 and MFE-7 diets had (p<0.05) the highest RBC counts, Hb content, albumin and total protein levels among other dietary groups while MFE-9 showed the poorest RBC, albumin and total protein. Histological study indicated that fish received MFE-9 diet showed minor degenerative changes in the liver. In conclusion, methanol extract of Morus alba at 7 g kg-1 of diet has no adverse impact on hematology and liver’s histology in African catfish.
