Proximate composition of different fish species collected from Muthupet mangroves


Author(s): Suganthi A, Venkatraman C, Chezhian Y

Abstract: The proximate composition such as carbohydrate, protein and lipid of muscle tissues was analysed 22 fish species collected from Muthupet mangroves. The carbohydrate content ranged from 2.87 mg/g to 4.26 mg/g and Lutjanus fulviflamus was conspicuous in possessing high content of carbohydrate (4.26 mg/g). The lowest carbohydrate content was found in Stolephorus commersonii (2.87 mg/g). The protein content ranged from 14.69 mg/g to 26.69 mg/g. However, in Sillago sihama, the protein content was very high (26.69 mg/g). The lowest was found in Plotosus canius (14.69 mg/g). The lipid content varied from 1.16 mg/g to 1.91 mg/g however, in Liza parsia, the lipid content was very high (1.91 mg/g) in the muscle when compared to other species. Among the 22 species, the lowest lipid level was observed in Hemiramphus sp., (1.16 mg/g).
