The nutritive value of Leucaena leucocephala in the diet of the Clarias gariepinus was investigated in this study; fingerlings (7.60g ± 0.001) were fed diet containing 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% inclusion levels of Leucaena leaf meal for 8 weeks in outdoor hapa system. Result obtained reveals that Fish fed 20% Leucaena leaf meal had the best performance in terms of weight gain, specific growth rate (SGR) and feed conversion ratio (P<0.05), hence Leucaeana leucocephala leaf meal can be included in the diets of Clarias gariepinus at 20% inclusion levels without adverse effect on the African catfish. Further research could focus on higher inclusions level in an attempt to further reduce cost of fish production
