Hematological and serum biochemical parameters are essential for the evaluation of both structural and function status of fish species due to the involvement of culture environment and sex. To obtain a basic knowledge about the variation in hematological and serum biochemical parameters of conventional (CV) and specific pathogen-free (SPF) rare minnow (Gobiocypris rarus) with respect to sex, blood samples collected from 720 healthy and adult rare minnow (♀:♂=1:1) are analyzed by using standard

The results indicated that hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (HCT) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) values in female CV rare minnow were 82.4 ± 9.5 g/L, 41.6 ± 8.4%, 408.3 ± 81.6 fl, which were significantly lower than those in SPF rare minnow (p < 0.05). Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) differed significantly between these two cultured rare minnows (p < 0.05), and no significant differences were observed in other serum biochemical parameters (p > 0.05). In addition, MCV values of female rare minnow are significantly higher than male individuals (p > 0.05). These data demonstrated that hematological and serum biochemical parameters of rare minnow were affected by culture environment and sex, and that a clean culture environment could contribute to the health physiological status of rare minnow.
