Research aim was determine of IGF-I effect on gurame growth. 70 number of gurami, divided into 7 treatments, T0: without injection IGF-I (control), T1, T2, and T3: patented IGF-I recombinant mouse (RM) from Biolegend (San Diego CA-USA,) 10ng/mL, 20ng/mL, and 40ng/ mL respectively, furthermore T4, T5 and T6: IGF-I from local pregnant mare serum (PMS) 10ng/mL, 20ng/mL, and 40ng/mL. The results indicated non signicant differences (p>0.05) between the patented IGF-I (RM) with IGF-1 from local pregnant mare sera (PMS) effect on growth improvement in the weight and body length of gurame, but both were signicantly better (p<0.05) than control
