Aquaculture is a highly profitable venture in India. Also, it has availability of nutritive food for the growing population. Cows were regarded as wealth and were the backbone of the economy of ancient Indians. Cow urine is considered to be the most effective animal origin substance having intrinsic property of general health improvement. (Gir) Cow urine were used in this present study, to evaluate its efficiency in enhancing growth and improving in mrigala fingerlings, one of the Indian major carps. The control and treated groups were sacrificed on the 30th day post cow urine treatment and the growth and biochemical parameters were analyzed, the results show significant effect of cow urine of the Indian major carp Cirrhinus mrigala. The maximum growth rate of 0.00532 gm/day was observed in the cirrhinus mrigala fingerlings treated with 0.1% of Gir Cow Urine when compared with control.
