Aim: To determine the effect of feeding Sesbania leaf meal (SLM) in the diet of Cyprinus carpio (Common carp) in replacement of de-oiled rice bran (DORB).

Methodology: A 60-day-feeding trial was conducted by feeding common carp with diets containing 15%? to 30% Sesbania leaf meal replacing DORB. Liver and intestine tissues were collected for histological examination, while blood was collected for estimation of blood count and serum metabolites (glucose, white blood cell (WBC), red blood cell (RBC), packed cell volume (PCV) and haemoglobin).?????

Results: Serum glucose value was significantly (P < 0.05) higher in the leaf meal fed groups compared to the control group. RBC and PCV value were highest in control group while WBC values were lower in the control group. Intestine and liver histology showed pathological alterations in Sesbania leaf meal fed groups compared to the control group.      

Interpretation: The study indicated that raw Sesbania leaf meal had an obvious adverse effect on the health of Cyprinus carpio fingerlings. The mortalities observed due to leaf meal inclusion indicate their intolerance to the toxic factors present in the Sesbania leaf meal.       

Key words: Cyprinus carpio, Histology, Sesbania leaf meal, Serum parameters
