Scholarcy highlights

  • We evaluated the effect of dietary supplementation with anthraquinone extract on the resistance to Aeromonas hydrophila infection in Megalobrama amblycephala
  • The fish were randomly divided into two groups: a control group and a treatment group and fed for 10 weeks
  • Mortality was significantly lower in the treatment group than the control
  • Our results suggest that ingestion of a basal diet supplemented with 0.1% anthraquinone extract from R. officinale Bail can enhance resistance against pathogenic infections in M. amblycephala
