Comparative analysis of the Biochemical Composition of wild caught Penaeid shrimps (Penaeus Indicus, Penaeus Monodon and Penaeus Vannamei) in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh


Author(s): Vardi Venkateswarlu

Abstract: The purpose of present study was conducted to compare the biochemical composition of wild caught shrimp Penaeus. indicus, Penaeus. monodon and Penaeus. vannamei. The moisture, protein, lipid, carbohydrate and ash were analyzed. The mean value of moisture, protein, lipid, carbohydrate and ash were found as 78.9, 52.4, 11.3, 13, 5.7% respectively in P. indicus and 80.8, 48.6, 10.9, 7.4, 6.1% respectively in P. monodon. In wild and cultured shrimp the mean value of moisture, protein, lipid, ash and carbohydrate were found 76.3, 39.8, 16.1, 4.8, and 4.9% respectively in P. vannamei. The biochemical proximate compositions were significantly (p≤ 0.05) in all three shrimp samples. It showed the wild caught shrimp contain superior nutrients. Meanwhile, the wild shrimp showed better nutrient value. Hence, present study suggests that locally available shrimp can be used as a healthy choice of sea food for human consumptions and good source of animal protein.
