The experiment was conducted in Nkolnkondi II, Central Region-Cameroon with the main objective of contributing to ameliorate the massive production of Oreochromis niloticus associated with Clarias jaensis in fertilized ponds. A total of 500 fingerlings of Clarias jaensis and 1000 fingerlings of Oreochromis niloticus with their respective average weights of (20, 39±4,87g) and (15, 32±3,01g) were stocked in three treatments. The treatment (To) is a control not treated with fertilizers and the treatments (T1, T2) consist of a portion of fish fed with fowls and pigs droppings. The following results were obtained : final average weight, weight gain, daily weight gain and the specific growth rates of T0 in Oreochromis niloticus were : (147,45±0,07 g) ;(128,12±0,87g);(1,26±0,73g/j) those of T1 and T2were respectively (171,00±0,97g); (153,69±1,99g); (0,84±0,06g/j); (1,33±0,62%g/j) and (151,60±1,99g);(115,32±1,29g) ;(0,64±0,24g/j) ;(1,19±0,16%g/j). But those in Clarias jaensis were as follows ;T0 (138,20±0,92g) ,(124,42±2,51g);(0,38±1,08g/j), (1,13±0,51%g/j), T1 and T2 were (158,63±1,69g) ,(122,93±1,02g) ,(0,74±0,09g/j),(0,41±0,09g/j),(0,41±0,11%g/j) and (125,07±1,28g) ;(108,90±1,69 g) ;(0,21 ±0,03 g/j) ;(0,52 ± 0,35g/j) respectively. For survival rate, the followings [(82,15±1,06 %) ,(76,53±1,46%) ,(86,63±1,29%) and (96,20±0,12%) ,(92,36±1,02%) , (94,16±0,09%)] were respectively obtained in Oreochromis niloticus and Clarias jaensis in treatments T0, T1 and T2. It was observed that the treatment T1 from the portion fed with fowls droppings recorded a high significant value (p˂0.05) in final average weight, weight gain, average daily gain and specific growth rate of juveniles of Oreochromis niloticus with respect to T0 and T2.
