Abstract: The objectives of the study were to determine the eect of replacement of sh meal (FM) by telescopium mussel meal (TMM) on growth performance, feed efficiency and survival rate of juvenile milk fish (Chanos-chanos, initial body weight 0.25 0.04 g). Five replacing levels (0, 25 %, 50 %, 75 % and 100 % of shmeal protein were replaced by TMM protein) were prepared. One diet from commercial diet was a control diet. The experiment was designed by using Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 6 treatments and 3 replications. The study showed that substitution FM with TMM was a significantly (P0, 05) on feed convertion ratio and feed efficiency. The absolutely growth was highest in the fish fed diet B (0, 87+0, 25 g). While, survival rate was highest in the fish fed E (100 % TMM) that was 60, 63, 44 %. This study concluded that replacement 25 % of FM with TMM in the diet could improve the growth and survival rate of milkfish juvenile
