BSF larvae meal contains protein which is very high so that it can be used as a protein source to replace fish meal. This study aims to determine how much the use of BSF larvae Meal in substituting fish meal for consumption, weight gain and feed conversion in quail. This study used 200 7-day-old female quails that were kept for 6 weeks 42 days with an average initial weight of ± 23 grams. This study uses a completely randomized design (CRD), which consists of 4 treatments and 5 replications. Using experimental ration: P0 Ration without addition of BSF larvae meal; P1 = BSF larvae meal 3.183% (6.67% crude protein of fish meal); P2 = BSF Larvae meal 6.370% (3.34% crude protein of fish meal); P3 = BSF Larvae meal 9.565% (0% crude protein of fish meal). The parameters measured were the amount of consumption, weight gain, quail carried out every week during the study and feed conversion rate as an indicator of the efficiency of ration use. The results showed that ration consumption and weight gain and feed conversion did not significant affect (P> 0.05) meaning that the substitution of fish meal with BSF to P3 larvae meal could be carried out without negatively affecting the performance of quails.
