|Abstract:||© 2019, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. The present study was conducted to assess the effects of combined and singular dietary administration of PrimaLac® and potassium diformate (KDF) on growth performance, feed utilization, digestive enzymes activity, and some physiological parameters of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) juvenile. Three hundred sixty rainbow trout juveniles (25 ± 1.8 g) were randomly stocked in 300-L tanks (30 fish/tank), and fed three times daily on a basal diet (control), diets incorporated with 12 g kg −1 KDF (FT 1 ), 1.5 g kg −1 PrimaLac® (FT 2 ), and combination of 1.5 g kg −1 probiotic and 12 g kg −1 KDF (FT 3 ) in triplicates, for 8 weeks. At the end of feeding trial, growth performance, body composition, digestive enzymes, liver enzymes, and biochemical parameters were measured. Our results revealed that combined administration of PrimaLac® and KDF (FT 3 ) exhibited significantly higher weight gain and specific growth rate (SGR) compared to other groups (P < 0.05). Glucose and cortisol levels showed no significant differences between fish fed different test diets (P > 0.05). The highest lipase, protease and amylase activity were observed in group of fish fed FT 3 followed by FT 2 and FT 1 . Besides, the diets FT 2 and FT 3 led to significantly lower of ALP, ALT, and AST compared to control group. The present results indicated that combined administration of PrimaLac® and KDF can be considered as a beneficial feed additive and growth promotor for O. mykiss juvenile.|
