Abstract: Present study focuses on growth performance of C. striatus using different feeding regimes of live feed and formulated feed. Murrels, belonging to the family Channidae, are widely known as snakeheads. Larviculture of murrels is a herculean task as they are carnivorous and piscivorous with cannibalistic behaviour. Artemia nauplii and rotifers are required for the best survival and growth of C. striatus during the early nursery management, and a combination of fish meal, Artemia nauplii and zooplankton was considered as the overall best diet for larviculture of murrels.
