Fish bone is an industrial waste of fishery product processing which as a potential source of calcium and phosphorus for livestock. The general principle to process the fish bone to bone meal is an effort to hydrolyze non-ash components contained in the bones, especially collagen. The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of skipjack tuna bone meal on uric acid and blood glucose in Broiler. Research was carried out at Biochemistry Laboratories, Animal Husbandry, Universitas Padjadjaran. Ninety-day old chicks Arbor Acres C.P. 707 were used randomizedly in this experiment, and were studied for six weeks. Research used an experimental method with a Completely Randomized Design (CRD). There were three treatments i.e. R1 = ration with dicalcium phosphate, R2= ration with commercial bone, R3 = ration with skipjack tuna bone meal, and each treatments were repeated five times. The results of the research is adding skipjack tuna bone meal indicated the highest for uric acid and blood glucose, the lowest level is adding dicalcium phosphate and Indonesia commercial bone.
Key words: skipjack tuna bone meal, broiler, uric acid, blood glucose
