Abstract: Present study deals with investigation of mineral composition of the freshwater crab Paratelphusa lamellifrons from the river Padma near Rajshahi city of Bangladesh. Amount of mineral in the different body parts were found to be in the range between (6.63-7729.15) mg/kg. Mineral components like K, Ca, Fe, Cu and P among the different body parts of the freshwater crab were recorded in the ranges of (1037.03-1192.79) mg/kg, (5385.87-5640.81) mg/kg, (423.22-487.03) mg/kg, (6.63-64.78) mg/kg and (6539.21-7729.15) mg/kg respectively. From the present study it is evident that the different body parts contents higher amount of P, Ca and K than Fe and Cu. Among the different body parts of crab presence of minerals in cephalothorax were found to higher compared to cheliped and legs.
