ABSTRACT
Ammonia poisoning causes significant production losses in livestock farming of carp. Therefore, the purpose of the paper is to assess the causes of ammonia poisoning, as well as the disorders that may occur in body of fish. The researches were conducted in six ponds located in Ilfov region, populated with carp (Cyprinus carpio). During the experiment it was noted the correlation between ammonia poisoning of fish and the pH values and temperature of water. The increase of the pH value and the water temperature prevents removal from the body of ammonia resulted from protein metabolism, as well as it accelerates the transformation of ammonium ions into ammonia and the introduction of it in the carp’s body. Ammonia poisoning causes serious disorders at blood level, respectively it reduces the number of erythrocytes, the value of hematocrit and that of haemoglobin and it increases the concentration of
ammonia.

Keywords: ammonia, carp, water pH, water temperature, hematologic analyzes
