Abstract—Cyprinus carpio (Common carp) fingerlings, measuring 5.85 ± 0.02 g and 4.2 ± 0.22 mm procured from local fish ponds were brought to the laboratory and acclimatized to the laboratory conditions (12 h: 12 h L/D regime, continuous aeration, periodical exchange of non-chlorinated and non- polluted water) for a week. During acclimatization the fingerlings were fed on commercial fish feed. The fingerlings were divided into four groups of 10 each and were fed @ 3% body weight at 8.00 am and 8.00 pm every day. Total protein, Total carbohydrate and Total lipid were measured in the muscle and Liver tissues of fingerlings on day 1, 10, 20 and 30. After the completion of 30 day period, it was observed that the total protein in the muscle and total lipid in the liver increased with increase in time both in control and experimental groups; however the magnitude of increase or decrease respectively in the above variables is more pronounced in Spirulina fed fingerlings than in the control groups. Similarly the magnitude of increase in total body length and total biomass of Spirulina fed fingerlings is highly significant. The results highlight the importance of Spirulina as a feed supplement in enhancing the overall growth of fish.
