Abstract: Proximate profiles such as protein, carbohydrate, lipid and moisture content is often necessary to ensure that they meet the nutritional requirements essential for the growth and health of a living being. Hence, in the present study, the proximate compositions of three cuttlefish species from Thoothukudi coast were evaluated. Sepia prabahari had highest moisture level with a value 85.08±0.32 and S. ramani showed the lowest value (81.41±0.21). Protein content was highest in S. ramani with a value 16.474±0.46 and S. prabahari showed the lowest value (12.59±0.49). Ash was found to be higher in S. ramani (1.20±0.21) than the other two species. Carbohydrates were high in S. pharaonis (1.35±0.42) and low in S. ramani (0.71±0.10). Fat content ranged from 0.58±0.05 to 0.751±0.04 in the cuttlefish species. Thus, the present study showed that among the three cuttlefish species, Sepia ramani with highest protein content is nutritionally preferred.
