Abstract: Freshwater prawn have become an important component of global aquaculture both in terms of quantity and value. It is a one of the most important species for culture due to superior cultivable attributes such as very fast growth rate, high market demand, hardiness, euryhaline nature and its compatibility to grow with cultivable fin fishes. It could be cultured almost all freshwater bodies such as ponds, tanks, canals, cage, pans, raceways. As freshwater prawn culture becomes more intensive, it also becomes less dependent on natural food and more on prepared feeds. Freshwater prawn farming is carried out by small and marginal farmers who are employing a low input level. Here we concerned on most dietary nutritional component and their effective application in aqua-farming. Various studies have shown that M. rosenbergii is able to utilize a higher proportion of plant derived protein. Their results provide useful perspective for managers of current prawn farming operations. The purpose of this study was to evaluate nutritional requirement of freshwater prawn in aqua-farming.
