Thepurpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of salinity adaptation on some growth factors, hematology and chloride cell changes in the gills of the rainbow trout within 60 days.Experimental groups include fresh water, varied salinities of 15, 20 and 25 parts per thousand (ppt) respectively. The results showed that increasing salinity was reduced daily growth and SGR but FCR increased (P
