Background: Growth is affected by nutrition contents in the diet consumed. Nutrition playing role in the growth process is carbohydrate, protein, fat, mineral, water, and vitamins. Calcium is one of important minerals involving in cell metabolism process needed in the process of growth and development. One of sources of  animal calcium is anchovy, besides its cheap price, anchovies may be consumed wholy together with their bones. The purpose of this study was to observe whether the supply of anchovies as additional diet may increase the growth of male wistars.  Methods:  A number of 12 male wistars divided into two groups, control and experimental groups. The control group was only supplied with standard diet and sterile aquades, while the other group was supplied with anchovies as additional diet through oral sondage of 0,00062 gr/day x BW (Body Weigth) for 40 days.  Every wistar in each group was subsequently measured for its body length and weigth once a week to observe its growth and development. The data obtained were analized using anova test and LSD orderly. Results: The result demostrated the increase in the body length and weigth of the male wistars of both groups in each week. Anova statistical test that was continued with LSD test showed that there was significant increase (p<0,05) in the experimental group in each week compared to the control group. Conclusion: The supply of anchovies(Stolephorus sp) as additional diet may increase the growth of male wistars body length and weigth.   Key word :  anchovies (Stolephorus sp), growth and development, protein
