On the basis of the hematological, cytochemical, and biochemical blood indices, it has been established that the adaptive capabilities in common carp Cyprinus carpio and grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella are higher than in silver carp hybrid Hypophthalmichthys molitrix × H. nobilis, while the potential for growth is, by contrast, higher in silver carp hybrid.
