      Juveniles ofChanna striatus were fed twice a week with hormone supplemented diet at concentrations of 0, 1, 2·5, or 10 mg/kg fish and the hormone effects on growth and food utilization were observed for a period of 75 days. Neither ethylestrenol nor the tested doses of the steroid appear to significantly change feeding rate. Administration of 5 mg of ethylestrenol/kg fish not only enhanced growth but also conversion efficiency.
