The mudfish(Misgurnus anguillicaudatus) raising fed on hens excreta in order to study effects on production of animal feed resource. The raw hens excreta used for 2 years old mudfish diet during the 35 days and water in aquarium for mudfish was never exchanged during experimental period. Eight of 100L of aquarium. eight kg of mudfish and four of female korean native chicken were used this study. This study are divided according to the mudfish fed on commercial mudfish diet in the four of control group and fed on hens excreta in the four treatment group. The chemical composition was compared with commercial mudfish diet and hens excreta. In the both sample, crude protein contents was almost same. The crude fat and crude ash were higher in hens excreta than commercial mudfish diet. The growth performance of mudfish tend to high when fed hens excreta. There were no differences in contents of E. Coli and Salmonella and pH of water in aquariums between the groups. Mortality of mudfish tend to decrease when fed hens excreta. No problem with mudfish health was observed during the experimental period of 35 days. These results indicated that it is possible to raising mudfish fed on hens excreta only.
