The present study revealed that intensive culture of two-year-old carp, using a high-fat diet (group 1) or a high-carbohydrate diet (group 2), causing a statistically significant rise of cortisol level, resulted in statistically significant rise in potassium ion concentrations as well as a statistically significant drop in chloride ion concentrations (group 1 only).
