Four hundred shabbout fries (Tor grypus L. 1758), with average initial weight of 0.95±0.02 g and total average length of 4.10±0.05 cm, were fed for a period of 90 days with addition of commercial feed mannanoligosaccharide (MOS) and vitamin B12. The shabbouts were divided into four different groups and fed by different feeds (Control, Group A with MOS, Group B with vitamin B12, Group C with the combination of MOS + vitamin B12). The effects of feeding through MOS and vitamin B12in different proportions on growth in view of live weight and total length, survival rate, feed conversion, condition factor and protein efficacy were studied. The best growth in view of live weight of 4.51±0.16 g and length of 7.71±0.08 cm was maintained through vitamin B12 in Group B. As a consequence, the growth parameters of the shabbout fries fed through commercial feeds with the addition of MOS and vitamin B12 in different doses under empirical conditions showed affirmative effects on the survival rate, feed assessment, condition factor and protein efficacy.
