Abstract:     
Fish fry transport is a very important part of aquaculture. Hydrogen peroxide is generally used in aquaculture as an immersion treatment against many different disease-causing organisms, including external parasites, bacteria and fungi, on different species and life-stages of fish. In the present study, the release of oxygen from hydrogen peroxide was assessed using the Winkler’s technique. This technique is simple and cost-effective for transporting fingerlings using oxygen derived from hydrogen peroxide. Glass pieces were used, which gave good results for producing oxygen from the H2O2. The present findings showed that the fishes survive more time in the H2O2-treated water than the control. From the present investigation, it can be concluded that it would be possible to transport tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings using H2O2 as an oxygen source.
