. Kissing gourami (Helostoma temminckii) is one of the freshwater fish in Helostomatidae Family which can be found in Tulang Bawang River Basin. This study aims to differentiate the sex of kissing gourami (male and female) by using truss morphometrics method and to identify the morphometric character which can be used as sex identifier of kissing gourami. The samples used were mature gonad fish caught in the swamp of Bawang Latak, Tulang Bawang, Indonesia. The measured variable is the morphometric character based on truss morphometrics point. The data were then compared with the standard length (SL) to obtain the truss gap ratio. Furthermore, a statistical analysis was performed with the t-test between the male-female fish group and continued with data reduction process using SPSS software of 23 version. The results showed that the male-female of kissing gourami could be differentiated by the truss morphometrics method. There are 11 gap ratios out of 24 which can be used as identifier for male and female kissing gourami. These gap ratios are located in the head, body and tail.
