|Abstract: ||The inclusion of agricultural waste (cocoa pod husk) in the diet of Clarias gariepinus fingerlings mean weight 3.53±0.23g was placed on 5 test diets at inclusion levels of 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% cocoa pod husk (CPH) for 56 days. At the end of the feeding trial, the result obtained indicated significant differences (P<0.05) among treatments. Growth rate declined as cocoa pod husk inclusion level increased. Cocoa pod husk as energy source in the diet of Clarias gariepinus was found to be utilized up to 15% inclusion beyond which there was decline in growth.|
