Juvenile fish (initial mean weight 2.76 g) were fed with is onitrogenous diets including10, 14, 18 and 22% of dietary lipid in triplicate groups for 15 weeks. The results showed that the highest growth performance and feed utilization was observed in fish fed D10. The increase of dietary lipid from 10 to 22 % did not improve growth, feed conversion rates, protein efficiency ratio, nitrogen retention efficiency, and apparent digestibility coefficients of protein and lipid (P>0.05). The increase of dietary lipid had significantly increased the whole body and hepatic lipid, hepato-somatic index, visceral-somatic index and intraperitoneal fat levels (P<0.05). These results suggest that there is no protein sparing effect of high dietary lipid levels inO. Marmorata due to possibly a limited ability to utilize dietary lipid. Based on the second-order polynomial regression analysis on protein efficiency ratio, ca. 12.1% of dietary lipid appears to be optimumfor growth from 2.76g to 13.76g body weight of O. marmorata juveniles.
