The current experiment was designed for evaluation of formulated diet prepared by locally available feed ingredients rice bran, mustard oil cake, madua flour (Ragi), soybean cake and mineral and vitamin mixture as potential basal ingredients for Chinese carp culture in mid hills of Uttarakhand. Three experimental diets (D1, D2, and D3) of different composition and the similar protein level (27-30%) were formulated with locally available ingredients. Data on the proximate composition reflected that there was not any significant difference in nutritive value of elements in all diets. Protein level in the all diets was in the range of 27.4 - 30%. A feed trial was conducted for standardization of the feed composition by using locally available ingredients during the month of May-June. At the end of experiment treatment fed with diet D3, showed highest net weight gained 55.78 gm with 95% survival, SGR 3.46 % and 3.1 % minimum value for FCR as compared to treatments fed with D1and D2 experimental diets. The findings of the current study indicate that locally available feed ingredients from mid hill region of Uttarakhand can serve as potential basal feed ingredients for hill carp culture.
