Due to worthy status of blood in clinical pathology, hematological parameters are used as catalog to detect physiological changes following different stress conditions. The present study assessed the effect of herbal medicinal plant Arnebia benthamii of family ‘Boraginaceae’ on the hematological {(Total leucocyte count (TLC), Total erythrocyte count (TEC), hemoglobin level (HB)} and serum biochemical parameters {(serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT) and blood glucose)} of fish which was observed at 14 and 28 days of feedings. This investigational trial effect of A. Benthamii on hematological parameters in Channa Punctatus was conducted by feeding the various levels of A. Benthamii as control S0, S1 (0.1%), S2 (0.2%), S3 (0.4%), S4 (0.8%) and S5 (1.6%) for a period of 14 and 28 days. Fish fed with A. Benthamii showed significant enhancement in (TEC), (TLC), (Hb), and also major boost in serum biochemical parameters. Thus, A. Benthamii can be used as a potential hematological enhancer in aquaculture.
