Abstract: Polyculture trial of selected cultivable fin fishes was conducted at the Institute’s experimental fish farm Ikoyi, Lagos from April 1983 to January 1984. The species, Mugil spp; Tilapia spp; Hemichromis fasciatus and Elops lacerta gave a total annual production range of 1219 kg to 1441 kg per hectare (extrapolated). Tilapia species had the highest growth potential constituting 80% of the total harvest. Supplementary diet used was food left over (waste) from selected big hotels in Lagos. Elops lacerta (predator) recorded the highest average body weight of 415.88g while the lowest weight 62.14g, was recorded for Mugil spp. Tilapia spp and Hemichromis fasciatus had average body weights of 72.5g and 6.7 0g respectively.
