Omovwohwovie E. E, Omoruwou P. E.

Abstract: A study to evaluate the chemical and nutritional value of melon shell as fish feed ingredient was carried out. Samples of melon shell were collected from Asaba market and taken to the lab for proximate analyses. Result shows moisture content value was 8.9%, crude protein 10.2%, crude fiber 4.5%, Ether extract 16.03%, while the ash content 6.23%. Crude protein value of melon shell shows no appreciable difference when compared with maize value 10.0%.This study shows that melon shell can conveniently replace maze in the formulation of fish feed.
