Abstract

An investigative study was carried out on the growth performance and nutrient utilization of (Clarias gariepinus) fingerlings fed earthworm meal as a replacement for fish meal. A large collection of earthworm was done during the peak of rainy season (July-August) within the University environment. They were then ovens dried. Used as test ingredients were 0% (Diet 1) 50% (Diet 2) and 1000% (Diet u). The trials were conducted in plastic bowls (40-L capacity) under laboratory conditions. The diets were fed at 5% body weight to fish; the fish were stocked at 10 fish per bowl. The evaluation of the growth parameters showed that there was no significant difference (P>0.05) in mean weight gain (MWG) specific growth rate (SGR) food conversion ratio (FCR), protein efficiency ration (PER) and survival among the fish fed the experimental diets
