Abstract: 150 fingerlings of Clarias gariepinus (3.43±0.38g) were fed for 56 days to assess the utilization of enzyme supplemented cassava root flour (ECF) in their diet. Five iso-nitrogenous diets (40% CP, 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% levels of ECF inclusions) were formulated in a completely randomized design. The data analysed shows no significant difference in all the growth parameters measured. The highest value (11.60 g) of mean weight gain recorded in Fish fed diet 25% was not significantly different from 10.46 g recorded in fish fed diet 100%. PCV (31.00%) and haemoglobin (10.00 g/dl) values in fish fed diet 25% were significantly higher than those fish fed other diets. Fish fed diet 75% recorded significantly higher values of TP (61.00 g/dl), albumin (3.5 g/dl) and cholesterol (51.00 mg/dl). The livers of fish fed 0% to 75% had no visible lesion while fish fed diet 100% had severe vacuolation of hepatocytes.
