A study on the performance of Clarias gariepinus fingerlings fed with integrated fish meal as diet with two various level of formulations was carried out. The feed trial was for 77 days to compare the length-weight gain of fish reared with commercial diets and those reared with 50 and 100 integrated fish meal respectively the control group were fish fed with commercially procured feed with no integration. The fishes were fed twice on day-to-day basis at 5 body weight for the experimental period. A random sampling of ten 10 fishes was done weekly to determine the growth performance of the fish. Results divulge significant difference p0.05 in the final mean body weight mean body length and specific weight gain within experimental diets with the highest in fingerlings bred with 100 integrated fish meal. Even though fish fingerlings fed with commercial livestock feed consumed more feed and attaining advanced feed conversion ratio values than those fed with integrated fish meal of 50 and 100 formulations respectively. The study therefore inveterate that integrating fish meal into percentages of between 50 and 100 formulations could act as a substantial replacement and supplementary feed for C. gariepienus fingerling encouraging 46-50 growth with decrease mortalities.
