Abstract: The present study was carried out to understand the effect of dietary peppermint (Mentha piperita) on growth performance of Labeo rohita. A control diet without incorporating peppermint and test diets incorporating Mentha piperita at 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% kg/feed were fed in triplicate group for 90 days. Fish growth was assessed in terms of weight gain, specific growth rate and food conversion ratio. Results indicated that all the growth parameters were significantly increased (p<0.05) in T4 where fish fed with 2% peppermint incorporated diet. Dietary incorporation of Mentha piperita in all concentrations stimulated fish appetite compared to control group and could be recommended as a safe growth promoter for enhancing fish growth and production.
