Abstract

Cyprinus carpio (L.) fry were fed with a control (0% water hyacinth) and three different experimental diets, containing 15%, 30% and 45%of water hyacinth in place of fish meal as protein source at 5% of the body weight for 120 days under laboratory condition. The study revealed a decrease in the growth performance indices as the percentage of water hyacinth increases. The results also clearly showed that fry fed with diet 15% water hyacinth dietary inclusion perform the best result among three different experimental diets. Although fishmeal is non replaceable but can be supplemented with water hyacinth up to an optimum level to produce cost effective feed for the growth performance of Cyprinus carpio. There was no significant difference between the growth performance of fish that were fed diets containing up to 15% water hyacinth and fish that were fed the control diet (P0.05), except for the group of fish on the 45% water hyacinth diet. Also, no significant difference was observed among treatments with respect to feed utilization (P0.05).
