Proximate composition of Salmophasia bacaila (Hamilton, 1822), a small indigenous freshwater fish of river Tungabhadra, Karnataka, India


Author(s): Shanmukha Rao Mallipudi, Dr. Raja Sekhar Mallipudi and Dr. G Simhachalam

Abstract: The proximate analysis of Salmophasia bacaila was carried out to understand the effect of parasitic infection on its nutritive value. Some important constituents like protein, lipid, moisture and ash were estimated for 12 months (March, 2017 to February, 2018) for both infected and non-infected fishes. Protein values were ranged between 14.90% - 18.60% in non-infected fish and 13.60% - 17.58% in infected fish. The lipid values ranged between 1.84% - 3.34% in non-infected fish and 1.52% - 3.26% in infected fish. The moisture values ranged between 72.12% - 74.84% in non-infected fish and 73.10% - 79.40% in infected fish. The ash content ranged between 2.54% - 4.22% in non-infected fish and 2.70% - 4.80% in infected fish. Significant changes in the proximate composition of infected and non-infected fishes were observed.
