Table 1: Effect of four diet regimes, basic (no additives), CloSTAT diet (basic diet with 0.04% of CloSTAT), a nigella diet (basic diet with 3.0% of Nigella sativa), and a combination diet (basic diet with 0.04% CloSTAT and 3.0% Nigella sativa) used to feed Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, on the white blood cells (WBCs) count, globulin level, phagocytic activity, phagocytic index, and cumulative mortality percent of fish challenged with Aeromonas hydrophila. Data represent the average of 3 experiments. Means of the same raw with the same letter are not significantly different, while those with different letters are significantly different (p<0.05).
