Abstract: The present study evaluated the effect of dietary doses of Achyranthes aspera extract as a natural antibiotic on growth performance of Indian Major Carp, Rohu, Labeo rohita average weight (28.1±1.2 g) and the mean length 19.30 ± 0.43 cm were divided randomly into 4 treatments (a control and other groups treated with the extract of 2%, 4% and 6% in the diet with 3 replicates and density of 15 fish per each replicate. After 4 weeks of feeding, growth parameters such as Weight Gain (WG), Specific Growth Rate (SGR) and Food Conversion Ratio (FCR) were examined. 6% doses of Achyranthes aspera showed the highest significant result of the final length-weight and growth indicators on first week, second week and fourth week respectively. The results suggests that the dietary supplementation of Achyranthes aspera extract act as immunostimulants, and growth promoter in Labeo rohita.
