Ngangom Lucky Devi, Chungkham Sarojnalini

Abstract :

 The present study was to analyse and compare the major components of farmed and wild captured Osteoama belangeri. Major components of dorsal, ventral and caudal muscles were analysed. Higher moisture content (76.23± .26) was observed in farmed dorsal muscle collected during summer. The lipid content was found highest (14.38± .08) in the ventral muscle of wild fish which was collected during winter season. Farmed fish showed highest protein (%) in all selected body parts than wild captured fish in both seasons. The ash content was found in the ranges of 2.86± .15 to 5.43± .40 in all selected body parts.From the above study was revealed that all the fishes studied were good sources of moisture, lipid, protein and ash. Thus, consumption of this fish should be encouraged.

Keywords :Major components   farmed   wild   protein.
