  Experiment was conducted to evaluate the growth performance of Tilapia niloticus fingerlings fed varying levels of Bambara waste meal based diets. Three hundred Tilapia niloticus fingerlings with a mean body weight of 3.5±0.1 g were assigned to five diets (CP = 32%) in which Bambara waste meal replaced maize at 0, 25, 50, 75, 100%, respectively in a completely randomized design replicated 3 times. The trial fish were fed at 5% b.wt., daily for a period of 84 days, data collected showed that body weight gain increased with increase Bambara waste meal in the diet (p<0.05). Similar observation was recoded for feed intake but there was significant (p>0.05). Difference in feed conversion ratio among the treatments. Data on economics of feeding shows that cost/kilogram of feed decreased progressively as the level of Bambara waste meal in the diet increased, which might be attributed to the cheap cost of Bambara waste meal as compared to that of maize which is expensive. Hence, Bambara waste meal could be recommended as a dietary supplement in the diet of Tilapia niloticus as it is the best means of reducing cost of production and also effective way of achieving the best output in terms of weight gain.
