Effects of different salinity level (0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 ppt) on the growth and survival of Cyprinus carpio fry for 28 days. The result showed no significant effect (P>0.01), in Weight Gain (WT), Percent body weight gain (%WBG), Specific Growth rate (SGR) for those fishes reared in 0, 2, 4 and 6 ppt salinity but negative significant impact was observed in 8 ppt respectively. The best specific growth rate (SGR) and Net Weight Gain (NWG) was obtained in control. The statistical analysis of variance of growth mean value indicates highly significant results (p˂0.05) between each other. Mortality was observed in 8 ppt was no significance different (P>0.01). 100 % mortality was recorded in 8 ppt (14-28 days) salinity which indicates the developed osmo-regulatory failure in fish.

Key words: Cyprinus carpio, Salinity, Survival, Growth.
