    Abstract
    The effect of dietary supplementation of corn husk meal on growth performance, liver antioxidant status and intestinal microbiota in Nile tilapia fingerlings was evaluated. Four experimental groups of fish with initial weight 0.47 ± 0.7 g in triplicate tanks were used; three of them were fed CHM incorporated diets (12.5 g/kg, DH12; 25 g/kg, DH25; and 50 g/kg, DH50), whereas a CHM-free basal diet served as control. No significant differences were observed in growth performance or feed efficiency in fish fed experimental diets ; however, fish fed the DH50 diet had a significant...
