The hematological values of 50 Siamese Tiger Fish, with an average body length of approximately 30 cm were: hematocrit, 24.4±5.6%, RBC, 4.0±0.9x106 cell/μl. and WBC, 32.4±10.3x103 cell/μl. From a thin blood smear, the results of a differential cell count were: lymphocytes, 85.8±4.6%, monocytes, 10.1±4.2% and granulocytes, 4.1±3.2%. Blood chemistry data for Aspatate aminotransferase(AST) averaged, 36.2±10.78 U/L, Alanine aminotransferase(ALT), 10.28±6.53 U/L, Glucose, 41.4±18.25 mg/dl., Blood urea nitrogen(BUN), 10.36±1.64 mg/dl., Total protein, 3.54±0.53 g/dl, Albumin, 0.66±0.73 g/dl and Globulin, 2.88±0.76 g/dl. From the structure of white blood cells studied under a light microscope and an electron microscope 3 types of leukocytes were seen, monocytes, lymphocytes and granulocytes. Details of the findings are described .
