Abstract: The experiment aims to study the effect of vegetable wastes like potato peel, cabbage waste and a combination of two in equal proportions as vegetable waste powder (VWP) on growth, carcass composition and survival of striped catfish fingerlings. 210 numbers of fingerlings were distributed in seven experimental groups and fed with isonitrogenous diets viz. T0 (control diet without vegetable waste), T1 (10% potato peel powder), T2 (15% potato peel powder), T3 (10% cabbage waste powder), T4 (15% cabbage waste powder), T5 (10% VWP) & T6 (15% VWP) for 90 days. Significantly higher body weight gain% (55.67±1.77), daily weight gain (0.083±0.0003) and SGR (0.491±0.001) were obtained in T6 group. The FCR (3.59±0.14) and PER (0.967±0.03) were significantly better in T6 group. The survivability was found to be 100% in all the experimental groups. Thus, it has been concluded that supplementation of VWP at 15% level in diets of striped catfish fingerlings can enhance growth.
