In this study, the effect of dietary supplementation of propolis on blood electrolytes (Na+, K+, Ca+2, Mg+2, Cl-) of juvenile rainbow trout under hypoxic stress (4.5 mg/l O2) was investigated. Three diets were prepared differing only in the type of supplementation as follows: P10 dietary group with 10 g/kg propolis, P30 dietary group with 30 g/kg propolis  and control (C) dietary group with no propolis. Based on statistical evaluations, it was observed that serum Ca+ and K+  level of C group was significantly higher than P10 and P30 groups (p
