This study reviews the effect of nutrition on fish development, growth and health. The need for sound nutrition and adequate feeding for fish cultured in captivity cannot be over emphasized. If there is no utilizable feed intake by the fish, there can be no growth and death eventually results. Diet contributes toward increased growth and weight gain. Growth is due mainly to protein tissues and increase in body carcass. Lipids are important source of energy and fatty acids that are essential for normal growth, survival of fish, fish development and flesh quality.
