The present study was carried out to understand the dietary ginger, garlic and fenugreek on growth performance on Litopenaeus vannamei L. Vannamei was fed with three different herbal powder of ginger, garlic and fenugreek of varying levels of 1%, 2.5%, 5%, 2%, 4%, 6%, 0.5%, 1% and 1.5% of concentrations respectively to assess the optimal growth promoting potential. The feeding trial was continued for 63 days with triplicates in each treatment. The growth parameters (ABW, weight gain, SGR), feed efficiency parameters (FCR) and survival rate were significantly (P<0.01) higher in treatment diets fed L. vannamei compared to control diet. Highest weight gain was observed in Garlic powder 4% supplemented diet compared to all other garlic supplemented diets. Growth measured as specific growth rate was improved with the herbal supplementation in the basal diets. The elevation in the SGR is in the order of garlic > ginger > fenugreek > control. It was found that GP 4% supplementation in the diet was optimal level of inclusion in garlic supplementation for L. vannamei culture. The diet supplemented with GP 4% fed L. vannamei was showed best FCR with higher significance (P <0.01) compared to other treatments.
