Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the effects of probiotics on growth, feed utilization and whole body proximate composition of Pabda (Ompok pabda) in laboratory condition for a period of 120 days under four treatments with three replication. Treatments were T1 (basal feed+0% probiotics), T2 (basal feed+0.2% probiotics), T3 (basal feed+0.4% probiotics) and T4 (basal feed+0.8% probiotics). Significantly highest mean final weight was recorded in T2 (5.81±0.11 g) followed by T3 (5.29±0.15 g), T4 (5.24±0.03 g) and T1 (4.70±0.49 g). The lowest feed conversion ratio (FCR) was obtained in T2 (1.36±0.04) than that of T1 (1.86±0.21), T3 (1.55±0.08) and T4 (1.55±0.09). Highest SGR value (1.65±0.02) was found in T2 than that of (1.41±0.12) T1, (1.54±0.01) T4 and (1.55±0.04) T3. Significantly highest PER was in T2 (2.10±0.07) compared to T1 (1.52±0.16), T3 (1.81±0.09) and T4 (1.83±0.10). Higher survival of Pabda was found in T2 (94.44±5.55 %) and T3 (94.44±5.55 %) and lower in T1 (92.59±8.50 %) and T4 (92.59±6.41 %). The highest moisture content was observed in T4 (75.83±0.12 %) followed by T1 (74.84±0.17%), T3 (74.46±0.11 %) and T2 (74.38±0.10 %). The highest ash content was obtained in T1 (4.25±0.14 %) followed by T2 (3.84±0.03%), T4 (3.58±0.13 %) and T3 (3.33±0.46 %). Significantly highest protein content of Pabda was found in T3 (16.04±0.13 %) followed by T2 (15.69±0.10 %), T4 (15.05±0.09 %), T1 (14.97±0.08 %) and highest lipid contents of Pabda obtained in T3 (5.82±0.14 %) followed by T4 (5.38±0.14 %), T2 (5.08±0.14 %) and T1 (4.87±0.09 %). Therefore, results of the study imply that probiotics treated fish showed better growth and feed utilization and 0.2% of probiotics (T2) showed better growth performance of Ompok pabda.
