Abstract—Efficacy of Garlic on the survival, growth and haematology of Penaeus mondon Post Larvae (PL) were investigated in the present study. Post larvae of Penaeus monodon were divided equally into five groups, each comprising 20 equal sized larvae to evaluate the efficiency of a garlic-supplemented diet (10 and 20 g kg–1 diet fed) in the performance of Penaeus monodon. Group (1) was the control (fed on base diet). Groups (2 and 3) were fed on garlic-supplemented diet (10 and 20 g kg–1 diet fed) for one month and groups (4 and 5) were fed on same doses of garlic-supplemented diet for two months. Survival, body weight and blood parameters were recorded. Significant changes in total leukocytic count in treatment group 2 and the monocytic count in groups 2-5 were also observed. There was slight increase in mean individual body weights of treatment groups 2-5 at the end of the experiment. Survival rates were significantly higher in all treatments compared to the control. Consequently garlic improved the growth performance.
