Abstract: The fillet yield of tilapia Oreochromis niloticus collected from Jebel Aulia, Sennar and Marawi dams was significantly differed at (P<0.05) in upstream while there were no significant differences in all environmental conditions throughout the collection period. The samples of the studied fish collected from upstream from three localities showed significant variations in the total weight, head weight, viscera weight, fin and skeleton weight and fillet weight. Chemical composition was presented as percentage for moisture, fat, Ash, crude protein and nitrogen free extract were tested for fish freshness and quality in all sites. The chemical composition of the studied fish collected from the three different sites significantly differed at (p<0.05) i.e. moisture, Dry matter, protein, Ash content, Fat content and either extract for upstream and downstream in Jebel Aulia, Sennar, Marawi dams, respectively.
