A 60-day feeding trial was conducted to study the effect of different levels of dried distillers grain soluble (DDGS) on growth performance of Cirrhinus mrigala fingerlings (average wt. 7.12±0.17g). Four different feeds were formulated with increasing levels of DDGS viz, 0 (DDGS0), 15 (DDGS15), 30 (DDGS30) and 45 (DDGS45) %, respectively .The net weight gain, specific growth rate (SGR), protein efficiency ratio (PER) were significantly higher (Piffer significantly among the treatment groups. Thus, from the present experiment it may be concluded that higher growth performance was observed in C.mrigala fingerlings  fry by feeding DDGS at 30% level.
