The high demand for pangasius consumption make the interests of farmers to be high in maintaining pangasius, but long maintenance becomes problems for farmers in making the cultivation of pangasius consumption, so that be required of segmentation maintenance to shorten maintenance time by means of fingerling (maintenance period of 3 months) before to the end growing of the seed size of 2 "-4" reach a size of 50-100 grams. Increased production of pangasius can be done through attention and monitoring to the stocking density of fish, especially of fingerling. Because the stocking density can affect fish growth and efficiency of the production. In this activity, fingerling pangasius were performed using two different stocking density in the stocking density of 100 fish / m3 and 200 fish / m3. The purpose of this actifity to determine the level of optimum stocking density on fingerling ikan patin.

       The results obtained from this activity is fingerling pangasius with a stocking density of 100 fish / m3 proved to be more optimal than the stocking density of 200 fish/m3. It can be seen from the average growth obtained at the end of the maintenance that the stocking density of 100 fish / m3 the average weight gained 146.3 g/fish and long 23.52 cm/fish while the stocking density of 200 fish/m3 the average weight obtained 108.8 g/fish and long 21.76 cm/fish. As for SR and FCR at stocking densities of 100 fish/m3 also obtain better results than stocking densities of 200 fish/m3. At stocking densities of 100 fish/m3 (SR 98.1% and FCR 1.09) and the stocking density of 200 fish/m3 (SR 97.5% and FCR 1.33).
