Bottom Line: A significant difference (p<0.05) was found in whole body composition (moisture, crude protein, crude lipid, ash, and fiber) of fish at the end of the experiment.Significantly higher (p<0.05) protein and lipid retention efficiencies (PRE and LRE) were also found in GP1.5, GP2, and GP3 groups.The present study suggested that dietary GP for fingerling sterlet sturgeon could positively affect growth performance and protein retention.

ABSTRACT
A 12 week growth study was carried out to investigate the supplemental effects of dietary garlic powder (GP) on growth, feed utilization and whole body composition changes of fingerling sterlet sturgeon Acipenser ruthenus (averaging weight, 5.5 g). Following a 24-h fasting, 540 fish were randomly distributed to each of 18 tanks (30 fish/tank) under a semi-recirculation freshwater system. The GP of 0.5% (GP0.5), 1% (GP1), 1.5% (GP1.5), 2% (GP2) and 3% (GP3) was added to the control diet (GP0) containing 43% protein and 16% lipid. After the feeding trial, weight gain (WG) of fish fed GP1.5, GP2 and GP3 were significantly higher (p<0.05) than those of fish fed GP0, GP0.5 and GP1. Feed efficiency and specific growth rate (SGR) showed a similar trend to WG. Protein efficiency ratio of fish fed GP1.5, GP2, and GP3 were significantly higher (p<0.05) than those of fish groups fed the other diets. A significant difference (p<0.05) was found in whole body composition (moisture, crude protein, crude lipid, ash, and fiber) of fish at the end of the experiment. Significantly higher (p<0.05) protein and lipid retention efficiencies (PRE and LRE) were also found in GP1.5, GP2, and GP3 groups. Broken-line regression model analysis and second order polynomial regression model analysis relation on the basis of SGR and WG indicated that the dietary optimal GP level could be greater than 1.77% and 1.79%, but less than 2.95% and 3.18% in fingerling sterlet sturgeon. The present study suggested that dietary GP for fingerling sterlet sturgeon could positively affect growth performance and protein retention.

Mentions: At the end of the 12 wk feeding, WG, FE, SGR, PER, HSI, and CF and survival of fingering sterlet sturgeon fed the experimental diets were determined and shown in Table 2. Fish fed GP1, GP1.5, GP2, and GP3 exhibited significant improvement in WG, FE, SGR, PER, and CF as compared to those of fish fed the control diet GP0 (p<0.05). Final weight of fish was the highest in fish fed GP3 (30.2 g), while the lowest (25.6 g) was found in fish fed GP0. The CF (0.52) of fish fed GP2 was significantly higher (p<0.05) than that of fish fed diet, it was, however, not significantly different from that of fish fed GP3 (p>0.05). The highest HSI (2.08%) was found in fish fed GP0 among treatments (p<0.05). Although fish fed GP3 showed the lowest HSI of 1.71% among fish groups, it was not significantly different (p>0.05) from three other groups (GP1, GP 1.5, and GP2). No mortality was recorded in all fish groups during the experimental period. Based on the on-way ANOVA, broken-line regression model analysis and second order polynomial regression model analysis relation on SGR and WG, the optimum dietary p level (%) could be greater than 1.77% and 1.79% (Figures 1 and 2), but less than 2.95% and 3.18% in fingerling sterlet sturgeon under our experimental conditions (Figures 3 and 4), respectively.
