Abstract: A feeding trial was conducted on the utilization of milk fat as energy source by Clarias gariepinus fingerlings (0.85±0.03g). The fishes were fed with 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% milk fat based diets respectively for 8 weeks. The results obtained showed significant differences (P<0.05) for diets containing graded levels of milk fat in terms of weight gain, feed conversion ratio and specific growth rate when compared with the control diet (0% milk fat). Among the milk fat based diets, diet containing 20% inclusion level of milk fat gave the highest specific growth rate value and lowest feed conversion ratio. The carcass analyses showed that, there were significant difference (P<0.05) between the control diet and milk fat based diets. Therefore, the results indicated efficient utilization of milk fat as protein sparing which would promote sustainable aquaculture in view of high cost of fish oil.
