  • Abstract:

Three populations (farm) of table size Clarias gariepinus were used for this research. The study was conducted to assess and compare the haematological parameters of different size groups in three different populations. Weight and length of the different size groups were measured and their blood samples were collected and analyse for haemtological parameter such as Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Haemoglobin (HB), Red Blood Cell (RBC), Platelet (PLAT), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH), Mean Corpuscular HaemoglobinConcerntration (MCHC), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), White Blood Cell (WBC), Heterophils (HET), Lymphocyte (LYM), Monocyte (MON) and Eosinophil (EOS). The data obtained were subjected to one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). There were no significant (p>0.05) differences in haematological parameters among the different size groups of the three population studied. Also, no significant (p>0.05) difference was observed in the same sizes of the different populations. Keywords: Clarias gariepinus, different size, same size, Haematological parameters
