Abstract—Tilapia is one of the most important aquaculture fish species and recently it is popularly cultured all over Bangladesh. The fish is widely consumed by the people for their rich protein contents. The recent question posed on the flesh quality of tilapia and human health issues initiated the present experiment. The objective of the present study was to assess the possibility of improving flesh quality with better growth performance of tilapia fingerlings with supplemented live feed. As tilapia being grown with several options of feed including three live feeds, Spirulina, Ceriodaphnia and Tubifex were tested. The best growth of tilapia was found with Spiruilna diet and the lowest with Ceriodaphnia fed fish. Considering flesh quality of Tubifex as diet followed by commercial feed supplemented with Spirulina showed the best proximate composition from nutritional aspect for human being and thus it was found to be the best choice to produce healthy fish for human consumption. Finally, it may be stated that the flesh quality of tilapia might be improved by supplementing animal based feed including plant based one. Focused research with different animal derivatives could help in developing better flesh quality fishes in the near future.
