In the present work an attempt has been made to study energy value of metabolism (respiration or oxygen consumption) in a fresh water teleostean fish, Channa striatus (Bloch) at water temperature 29.5±1.00C. The energy value of total metabolism (R) ranged from 723.1-10390.3 Joule/day/fish within the weight range 9.3 to 103.0 gram fish. The percentage of total energy of food (C) used in the metabolism (R) ranged from 36.0-40.7% with a clear trend of decrease in R value with increasing body weight. The details have been discussed in this paper.
