This study was conducted in the laboratories of college of Agriculture, University of Kirkuk from 21/12/2015 till 21/2/2016 for assessment of common carp fish production in earthen ponds in Kirkuk governorate by study of some biological, physiological features and growth performance. Fish samples were collected from five earthen ponds in different positions in Kirkuk governorate. This study was conducted from 21/12/2015 till 21/2/2016; fish were harvested by using fishing hooks, beach seine Net and cast net.  Along with the physio-biological indices, the fourth pond exceeded over other ponds in each of length-gill and weight-gill index, according to hepatosomato and gonadosomato index; the first pond differ significantly with 5.10 and 3.82 respectively, while the fifth pond exceeded significantly in condition factor. The statistical analysis appeared a positive correlation observed in the correlation between fish length and each of fish weight, gill weight, gill arch length and gill racker length.
