RUIZ-GONZALEZ, Luis Eduardo et al. Some hematology and blood chemistry parameters of the Pacific fat sleeper Dormitator latifrons (Richardson, 1844). Lat. Am. J. Aquat. Res. [online]. 2020, vol.48, n.1, pp.131-135. ISSN 0718-560X.

Dormitator latifrons is an amphidromous fish species distributed on the Pacific coastal region from California to Peru. It has a high potential to be cultured in Mexico. However, there is very little information about its biology, physiology and culture. This research study is a contribution to the hematology and blood chemistry of this native species. Results show hematocrit values of 28%, erythrocytes 2.075×106 mm3, leukocytes 35.035×103 mm3, mean corpuscular volume 161.547 fL, NBT 0.39, glucose 51.467 mg dL−1, protein 3.936 g dL−1, albumin 1.906 g dL−1, globulin 2.391 g dL−1 and albumin/globulin ratio 0.686.

Keywords : Dormitator latifrons; amphidromous fish; hematology; blood chemistry.
