Georgieva, K., Zhelyazkov, G., Staykov, Y. & Georgiev, D. (2019). Effect of dietary phytoextracts supplementation on chemical composition of common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.), cultivated in recirculating system. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 25 (Suppl. 3), 178–181
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of the dietary phytoextracts supplementation on the chemical composition in the meat of common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.). The fish were divided into 6 groups: one control (C) and five experimental groups whose feed was supplemented with 1g of curcumin (EC), paprika (EP), thyme (ET), oregano (EO) and garlic (EG). Significant influence was found on the water content and dry matter in EO group. The addition of phytoextracts to the diet of carp did not change significantly the protein, lipid and ash contents (P > 0.05).
