Some aspects of biology of clarias gariepinus in tiga dam were studied, these aspects include food and feeding habits, measurement of the body sizes, weights and condition factors. The population of males was significantly higher than the females. The mean weights ranged from 369.38gm to 673.9gm. The relationships between the standard length and weight was curvilinear. The fish exhibited isometric growth, and the mean condition factor (k) significantly (P<0.05) ranged between 0.90 – 3.71. The major food ingested were insects, fish parts and algae thus the fish is considered to have mainly omnivorous feeding habits.
