AbstractABSTRACT Protein requirements for young Bunni fish B. sharpeyi had been studied by using isoenergetic diets which include three different protein levels of 18 %, 28 % and 37 %. Twenty liters plastic containers were used for 60 days feeding trial with three replicates for each treatment. The results showed significant differences (p< 0.05) between the three treatments, best specific growth rate (% dayˉ¹), food conversion and protein efficiency were 0.414, 2.77 and 1.29 respectively in fish fed 28% protein. The study concluded that 28 % protein can provide high growth for young Bunni fish.
