Abstract: The effectiveness of menthol as anesthetic and sedative for fat snook (Centropomus parallelus) was tested at different salinities. In the first experiment, the fish were exposed to different concentrations of menthol (25, 37 and 50 mg L -1 ) in water at different salinities (0, 17 and 36 ppt). In the second experiment, the fish were transported for 10 hours in water with menthol at concentrations of 0, 3.7 and 7.4 mg L -1 under different salinities. Na + and K + ions from fish body and water were analyzed afte… Show more

“…In this study, based on preliminary trials (data not shown), anaesthetic concentration of menthol was ranged between 40 and 80 mg/L. Effective anaesthesia concentration of menthol in red‐bellied pacu was 50 mg/L which is agreement with reported for in juvenile fat snook ( Centropomus parallelus ) (Sepulchro, Carvalho, & Gomes, 2016), curimba ( Prochilodus lineatus ) (Medeiros‐Junior et al, 2018) and Pereira‐da‐Silva, Oliveira, and del Nero (2016) in lambari ( Astyanax altiparanae ) and, however, is lower than reported for several fish species. This lower concentration may be explained due to fish size.…”

“…In case of fat snook, Sepulchro et al. (2016) using fish with a weight of 1.6 ± 0.4 g reported an effective anaesthetic concentration for menthol of 50 mg/L and with the same species but using bigger animals (28.5 ± 1.2 g). Souza et al.…”

“…None of the fish in the control and blank groups presented any anaesthesia effect, as also observed by Sepulchro et al (2016), or any analgesic effect, demonstrating a response (nociception) to painful stimuli through jumps or open mouth. This highlights the need to seek methods to relieve or prevent pain during handling in order to preserve animal welfare, avoiding stress and harm to fish.…”

“…The transport of live fish is a routine activity in aquaculture that subjects them to a series of stressors, such as water deterioration, osmoregulatory disorder and biochemical and haematological changes (Berka, 1986; Boaventura et al, 2021; Favero et al, 2019; Jerez‐Cepa et al, 2019; Parodi et al, 2014; Purbosari et al, 2019). Due to these problems, anaesthetics and salt have been widely used in aquaculture to mitigate the effects of stress caused during transport (Favero, Silva, et al, 2019; Sepulchro et al, 2016; Tacchi et al, 2015; Urbinati et al, 2006; Wlademir et al, 2018). Benzocaine and eugenol are local anaesthetics used in human and veterinary medicine.…”
