This study was conducted to investigate the effect of addition of potassium iodide and thyroxin to sea bream fingerlings diets containing fenugreek as growth promoter on growth performance, feed utilization, body composition, biometric measurements indices, some serum constituents and histological characteristics of sea bream intestine. The 1st group was considered as a control which fed on the basal diet (C) for 84 days. The experiment was designed to determine the effects of using 2% fenugreek/kg diet (F), 2% fenugreek+0.05mg thyroxin/kg diet (FT4), and 2% fenugreek+0.1g potassium iodide /kg diet (Fi). The results of the present study showed that the best growth performance and feed utilization values were recorded in fish fed diets supplemented with F. The lowest growth performance and feed utilization values were recorded in fish fed diet supplemented with iodine when compared with corresponding values in case of C group. Histological analysis showed satisfactory values in F and FT4 groups compared to the control.
