Meitiyani, Excel Ratika, Agus Pambudi Dharma, Ranti Annisa.


Background: The nutritional content of maggot Hermetia illucens L. is very good as a potential source of animal protein as an alternative to natural fish feed. Therefore maggot Hermetia illucens L. is very potential as a substitute for fish meal which is currently the main raw material for fish pellets. Our study sought to determine the effect of a combination of maggot flour and fish meal on the growth of Sangkuriang catfish (Clarias sp.). This research is a continuation of research that has been done in 2017 using fresh maggot as catfish feed and freshwater pomfret.
Methods: Data were performed using a completely randomized design (CRD) technique with 4 replications and 6 treatments of catfish seeds, namely giving maggot concentrations of 10% (P1), 20% (P2), 30% (P3), 40% (P4), 50% ( P5), control treatment (without maggot) and analyzed using ANAVA.
Results: The percentage of maggot 30% and 70% fish meal provide increased growth and good survival for Sangkuriang catfish (Clarias sp.). Statistical tests at a significant level of 5% showed that feeding maggot flour significantly (P> 0.05) on absolute length, relative weight and relative length but did not significantly influence the absolute weight and feed efficiency ratio.
Conclusions: Giving maggot flour can increase the growth rate of Sangkuriang catfish (Clarias sp.) On growth parameters.

Key words: Fish Flour; Maggot (Hermelia illucens L.); Seed; Sangkuriang Catfish (Clarias sp.)
