One natural ingredient that can enhance non-specific immune responses and fish growth is garlic powder. Garlic is one of the natural plants that contain active ingredients, such as sulfur compounds: allicin, disulfide, trisulfide; enzymes: alinase, pectinase; and amino acids: arginine and minerals like selenium. This study investigated the effect of garlic (Allium sativum) extract on the non-specific immune response of Carp (Cyprinus carpio). The study was conducted using the experimental method. The addition of garlic in this study was: treatment A (0 g/kg of feed), treatment B (5 g/kg of feed), treatment C (10 g/kg of feed), treatment D (15 g/kg of feed). Feed), treatment E (20 g/kg of feed), and treatment F (25 g/kg of feed). The observed parameter was an increase in non-specific immune responses, including total leukocytes and phagocytic activity and absolute growth parameters. Based on the result, garlic extracts increased the non-specific immune response of carp.
