Variation of biochemical composition in relation to reproductive cycle of Mud Eel (Monopterus cuchia) under the agro climatic conditions of Meghalaya, India


Author(s): Barisha Mary Kurbah and Rabindra Nath Bhuyan

Abstract: Seasonal changes in biochemical composition of Mud Eel (Monopterus cuchia) were analyzed. The fish species were collected from three different areas of Meghalaya (viz; Nongpoh, Shella and Baghmara) from May 2016 to August 2017. Protein content was high during pre-breeding season with a mean value of 855.1μg± 0.04 and low during spent season (454.4μg± 0.05). The carbohydrate content of this species reveals that there was no significant difference from all four seasons with a mean value of 0.003μg± 0.001. The lipid content was highest during breeding season with a mean value of 154.2μg± 0.5, but dropped during post-breeding (61.4μg±0.5) and lowest during spent season (51.8μg±0.5).
