ABSTRACT. Tests were performed with four extruded feed mixtures balanced at an isonitrogen and isoenergetic level. The experimental feeds contained modified pig bristle, added at the rate of 5%, 10% and 15% in place of fish meal. Value of the feeds was estimated using chemical methods and growth performance in a feeding test carried out in experimental fish ponds. It was found that carp fry used in a most efficient way these feeds which contained 15 % of prepared pig bristles. The prepared pig bristles used in the experiment proved to be a valuable source of proteins and can be added instead of fish meal to carp fry feeds.
