Data analysis of protein, moisture, ASH and FAT profile of the fishes of upper Ganga


Priyanka Sharma, SB Sharma

A comparative study on the content of Protein, moisture, ash and fat four Indian fishes Labeo rohita, Cirrhina mrigala, Hypopth almicthy molitrtx, Tor putitora were carried out in the present study. The proximate analysis revealed that the protein content Labeo rohita,Cirrhina mrigala,Hypopth almicthy molitrtx, Tor putitora of 25.077%, 15.993%, 5.23%, 47.907% (% of wet weight), respectively. The total fat content was generally high, ranging from 16.46 % to 20.675% and ash ranged from 1.85% to 13.467 %. Moisture content varies from 78.06% to 65.83%. This result evidently shows that the importance of fish contain large amount of nutrients which help in fighting against mal nutrient problems which is very common problem in children.
