Fermented silage from fish viscera was prepared by homogenizing with lO%molasses,O.5%propionic acid (antimycotic agent) and 0.02% ethoxyquin (antioxidant). Isonitrogenous (21% protein) and isocaloric (ME=2900K Cal/kg) diets for broiler chicks were formulated replacing 25% and 50% fish meal by fish viscera silage. Fish meal at 8% (w/w) was kept as control. Consumption of diets containing silage was 7.3% lower, resulting into about 5% reduction in growth compared to control. Comulative feed conversion ratio was in the range of 2.20 to 2.29 and was not influenced by diets. Silage also had no marked effect on dressing yields (68.2-68.4%), meat: bone ratio (3.9-4.0) and muscle composition. Analysis of ranksums for sensory quality attributes of muscle from both silage fed and fish meal fed birds indicated that the differences were not significant (P>0.05). The findings suggest that fish meal upto 50% can be replaced by fish viscera silage in broiler diets without significantly affecting growth and meat quality.
