Abstract: The present study was conducted on small indigenous dry fish for evaluating proximate composition viz ash, protein, total sugar, fibre, fat, phosphorus, sulfur and sodium content. Three species were used such as Puti (Puntius sophore), Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola), and Darkina (Esomus danricus). Our study showed that there was a little variation in the nutrients and mineral content of Mola, Puti and Darkina fish collected from different northern region of Bangladesh. Puti fish shows good nutrients in all districts except sodium and phosphorus in Dinajpur district. In case of Mola fish the protein, total sugar and fiber content is slightly higher in Bogura, Rajshahi and Dinajpur districts respectively, whereas the phosphorus content is slightly higher in Dinajpur district compare with other districts. From the analysis of Darkina fish it was found that, ash content in Dinajpur is slightly higher than other districts. The ash content of the dried fishes obtained was in the range of 14.30 to 18.65% and the highest value obtained from Darkina (Esomus danricus) and the lowest from Puti (Puntius sophore). The protein content was found in the range of 41.59 to 61.96% with the highest value in Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola) and the lowest in Darkina (Esomus danricus). There was a variation in total sugar content which is in the range of 1.61 to 2.65% where the highest value in Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola) and the lowest in Puti (Puntius sophore). Fibre content was in the range of 2.17 to 8.74% with the highest value obtained from Puti (Puntius sophore) and the lowest value from Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola). The fat content was in the range of 2.17 to 7.77% with the highest value obtained from Puti (Puntius sophore) and the lowest in Mola (Amblypharyngodon mola). It is concluded that climate change, species variation, and the feeding habit may be the major factors to uphold the nutrient content in SIS.
