Abstract: This is the first study investigating the effects of dietary Ferula Coskunii (FC) on growth, body composition and liver histology of common carp (Cyprinus carpio). Experimental diets prepared by supplementation of 0, 1.5, 3.0 and 4.5 g FC commercial trout diet kg-1 () and randomly assigned to triplicate groups. Dietary inclusion of F. coskunii affected the growth and feed conversion negatively, but increased the protein and lipid content of fish fed diet with 3.0 and 1.5 and 4.5 g kg-1 FC; respectively (p<0.05). Hepatosomatic and viscera somatic index values of fish increased with the increasing rates of FC (p<0.05). Gonadosomatic index values did not change for male and female carp significantly. In addition, different levels of dietary FC had no detrimental effects on liver tissue and general fish health.
