The Ferula genus that belongs to Apiaceae has been used in traditional medicine in the Middle East, Central Asia and Mediterranean since its properties such as aphrodisiac, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and as well as its positive effects on dyspepsia, arthritis, and diabetes. The
present study examined the dietary effects of root parts of Ferula elaeochytris on growth of Goldfish (Carassius auratus), indicating its chemical composition. For this purpose, fish fed with experimental diets containing five different levels of F. elaeochytris (control, 0.5‰, 1 ‰, 0.5 %,
1%,) a period of 60 days. Relatively growth rate (RGR), feed conversion ratio (FCR), and specific growth rate %/day (SGR) were calculated. 180 of C. auratus individuals in total were used for five treatments in triplicates. The root parts of F. elaeochytris were extracted by different
methods to determine total protein and essential oil compositions. The WG, FCR, and SGR values of C. auratus have shown significant changes in the treatments with the supplementation of F. elaeochytris root to feed (P<0.05), comparing to the control. The highest WG and SGR values
were found in 0.5 % of F. elaeochytris root treatment as 81.99±1.53% and 0.99±0.01 respectively. These values in the control were 58.92±2.56 and 0.79±0.07, respectively. Also, the lowest FCR value, 1.33±0.09, was found in 0.5 % of F. elaeochytris root treatment. These results indicated profitable effects of dietary containing 0.5 % of F. elaeochytris root on growth parameters of C. auratus.
