The objective of the research was to examine the optimal doses of vitamin E added to feed diet on the gonad maturation of the climbing perch (Anabas testudineus Bloch) such as Gonad Maturation Level, Gonad Somatic Index (GSI), fecundity and egg diameter. A completetely randomized design with three replicationwas used and four treatments.The treatmen in this research were P0 (pellet+Vit E 0 mg), P1 (pellet+Vit E 150 mg), P2 (pellet+Vit E 300 mg) and P3 (pellet + Vit E 450 mg).The results of research indicate that dosage vitamin E 300 mg was the best dosage for gonad maturation, reared for 56 days and the total fish reached Gonad Maturations Level IV 14 individuals (77,78%), Index Gonad Somatic (IGS) 9,232%, fecundity of 4.010 and egg diameter 0,698mm. The temperature range from 26-280C, pH 5-6 and DO 4-5 ppm.Keyword : Vitamin E, Gonad Maturation, Climbing Perch (Anabas testudineus Bloch)
