Abstract: Melaleuca cajuputi leaves possessed various medicinal properties which make it a potentially valuable natural feed additive to the aquaculture industry. Four diets containing different dosages of M. cajuputi leaves extracts; 0g/kg (C), 5g/kg (T1), 10g/kg (T2) and 15g/kg (T3) were added to the diet to investigate the effects of the respective treatments on the growth performance and blood parameter of Macrobrachium rosenbergii (mean weight of 3.17±0.46g). After the 45 days of feeding, prawns fed the diet containing 15g/kg of M. cajuputi leaves extracts significantly enhanced growth performance, which showed that weight gain (WG) and specific growth rate (SGR) was the highest amongst all treatments (P<0.05). Blood parameters (total hemocyte count (THC), differential hemocyte count (DHC), plasma glucose level, protein concentration and resistance against Aeromonas hydrophila) were examined 60 days post-feeding period. The results showed that prawns fed with the highest dosage of M. cajuputi (15g/kg) enriched diet showed an increment of THC and DHC significantly at (p<0.05) compared to the control group.
