Increased amount of fishery by-product waste from tilapia fish and concerned over reducing undesirable environmental impact leads to conduct of this study. This study performs biological HAp extracted from tilapia fish bones which were collected from fishery factory as discard waste. Therefore, fish bone can be as cheap sources to produce HAp and can be crucial contributions in medical application. Based on this objective, fish bones of tilapia have been cleaned after boiled and milled for 1 h performed fine powder. The powder was calcined at temperature 800" C and 1000" C for 3h respectively. The XRD and TGA result revealed the presence derived HAp and coherent with Joint Committee on Powder Diffi-action Powder Standard data. SEM results shown polygon particle shape obtained from HAp powder. The findings present a promising fume regarded on producing high added value product from fishery waste beneficial to medical application.
