The objective of the present work was to evaluate the effect of feeding frequency and percentage of feeding on the zootechnical performance of common carp juveniles (Cyprinus carpio). 192 juveniles were fed extruded rations in a factorial scheme (2 x 4 x 4): two feed frequencies (one and two times a day), four percentages of nutrition (1, 2, 3 and 4%) and four replications. It is recommended for juveniles of common carp, 4% of feeding in two daily food frequencies, due to the best gain of weight.
