The blood was taken from the caudal vena using 1ml springe wet with 10% EDTA. Haematologycal parameters measured were blood glucose, erythrocyte, leucocyte, hematocryte and hemoglobin. Results shown that the blood glucose114mg/dL, total of erythrocytelevel 2,21x106cells/mm3, total of leucocyte 1,37x105cell/mm3, hematocryte 26,66% and hemoglobin 7,33 g/dl in floating cagesdownstream-upstreamhas a blood glucose 80,33 mg/dl, total of erythrocyte2,38x106cell/mm3, total of leucocyte1,29x105cell/mm3, hematocryte27,66% and hemoglobin 7,66  g/dl, while the fish that were rearead in the pond has a blood glucose 66mg/dl, total of erythrocyte2,37x106 cell/mm3, total of leucocyte1,27x105cell/mm3, hematocryte27,00% and hemoglobin7,66 g/dl.
