Weight gain%, SGR, and FCR were similar (p>0.05) for the fishes fed with either T3 feed or commercial carp feed (T4), whereas PER was highest for the T3 group. A significantly higher apparent dry matter and carbohydrate digestibility were observed in the T3 group. Highest crude protein digestibility was observed in T4 group, though lipid digestibility was similar in both T3 and T4 groups. The activities of digestive enzymes were similar in T2, T3 and T4 groups, whereas the lowest activity of these enzymes were observed in T1 group. Based on the findings it is concluded that T3 feed (crude protein 18.18 %) is having comparable growth performance of Labeo rohita as compared to T4 diet (crude protein 32.01 %) due to higher In vivo digestibility.
