Abstract: The present study was carried out to find the biochemical composition of freshwater fishes; Oreochromis mossambicus, Lepidocephalichthys thermalis and marine fishes; Sardinella lemuru and Stolephorus indicus. This study aim to estimate the amounts of carbohydrate, protein and lipids present in this four fishes. The carbohydrate content was high in the fresh water fish Oreochromis mossambicus (0.129±0.007) and very low amount in another fresh water fish Lepidocephalichthys thermalis (0.002 ± 0.00032). The protein content is high in the marine fish Sardinella lemuru (0.077 ± 0.0047) and very low in marine fish Stolephorus indicus. The lipid content was high in the marine fish Sardinella lemuru (0.98 ± 0.016) and low in fresh water fish Lepidocephalichthys thermalis (0.02 ± 0.008). The result revealed that among the four tested fishes, the high amount of carbohydrate content present in the fresh water fish Oreochromis mossambicus, high amount of protein and lipid content present in the marine fish Sardinella lemuru.
