Hematological parameters were measured for 27 healthy and 20 fungal infected Caspian salmon. White blood cells (WBC), neutrophile, and eosinophile have higher values (P < 0.05) in fungal infected fishes
than healthy Caspian salmon. The other parameters like hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (HCT), red blood cells (RBC), lymphocyte, and monocyte were greater in healthy Caspian salmon. Weight of healthy fishes had positive significant correlation with WBC. However, a negative correlation was seen between length and weight of fungal infected samples and WBC.
