Tow experiments were carried out on Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings to evaluate the best stocking rate and the level of a dietary prebiotic, respectively to obtain good performance after 75 days of the rearing. The obtained results revealed that the lowest stocking rate (5 fish/m3) and the highest level of the prebiotic (2 g/kg diet) reflected the best results in most studied measurements for the nutrients utilization, carcass physical and chemical quality, and blood.
