The gut content analysis provides the information on food components and feeding habit of fish which is an important aspect for fisheries management. In present study, the qualitative and quantitative analysis of gut content of Indian major carp Cirrhina mrigala from ponds of Sigheshwar, Madhepura; Bihar, were conducted during November 2012 to October 2013. The results on gut content shows that qualitative changes in food component were not found but quantitative changes were observed during the study period. In the gut of fish, food consists of aquatic plant parts (20.12%), phytoplankton (16.46%), zooplankton (19.69%), debris and detritus (22.00%), insects (6.78%) and semi-digested materials (14.83%). The finding suggests that this fish is more suitable for the pond rich in debris and detritus of plant origin.
