Serum osmolality, cortisol, and protein in laboratory common carp (Cyprinus carpio)

March 1, 2022

Common carp were placed into three treatment groups based on levels of induced stress in the laboratory setting. Measurements of common carp blood serum cortisol and serum protein were collected by spectrophotometry. Additionally, serum osmolality measurements were obtained by vapor pressure osmometry. Fish weights were taken at the time of blood collection.
