Languages of publication



This research focused on determining the best survival performance of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus (Linnaeus, 1758)) fingerlings in a current generating circular tanks and challenged by Aeromonas hydrophila. This research used a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with four treatments and four replications. Fish size are ranging from 5 to 7 cm that obtained from Fish Breeding Center of Bandung City, Indonesia. The treatment used are water current and venturi combination with water velocities of 0 m s-1 (A), 0.06 m s-1 (B), 0.1 m s-1 (C), and 0.2 m s-1 (D). The research started with fish rearing (40 days) and was followed by a challenged test (14 days). Tilapia fingerlings were challenged by A. hydrophila at density 108 cfu ml-1 using immersion method. The parameters were gross clinical symptoms, survival rate, red blood cells, white blood cells and water quality. The results showed that current and venturi combination of 0.1 m s-1 gave the best immune performance seen from the increase in red blood cells and white blood cells with 48% of survival rate, however survival rate was not significantly different (p ≤ 0.05) among treatments. The increase in red blood cells and white blood cells was from 1.1 × 106 cells mm3-1 to 5.1 × 106 cells mm3-1 and 4.2 × 105 cells mm3-1 to 5.6 × 105 cells mm3-1 respectively. Current generating circular tanks also enhanced tilapia immune system against A. hydrophila infection since fewer clinical symptoms occurred during challenged period.
