The low survival rate and size non-uniformity in giant freshwater prawns become a problem in the development of cultivation. This study aims to determine changes in survival rates and uniformity in the size of giant prawns fed with the addition of banana peel flour. This study uses five types of feed added 0; 2.5; 5; 7.5 and 10% banana peel flour in feed composition. Each treatment is carried out three repetitions. The density of giant prawns is 10 fish/aquarium. The observed parameters were the survival rate, length and weight of giant prawns periodically for 60 days. The results showed that all feed treatments with the addition of banana peel flour resulted in increased survival rates and uniformity in size. The best results were obtained in giant prawns fed with the addition of 5% banana peel flour by weight of the feed. The conclusion of this study is that the survival rate and optimal size uniformity are enhanced by the addition of 5% banana peel flour in the feed.  Keywords: banana peel meal, giant freshwater prawns, survival rate, uniformity of size
