Abstract


The study presents the content of moisture, fat, protein, ash and carbohydrate in some selected fish of Bangladesh. The
study fishes include Ketchki fish {Coria soborna, Hamilton-Buchanan, 1822), Molafish (Amblypharyngodon
mola, Hamilton-Buchanan, 1822), Poah fish {Panna microdon, Bleeker,1842), Tilapiafish (Oreochromis

(Labeo rohita, Hamilton- Buchanan, 1822), Takhi fish {Channa punctatus, Bloch&Schneider, 1801), Pangas
fish (Pangasius pangasius, Hamilton-Buchanan, 1822). The moisture content, in present study, was found to be
in range of 71.9-80.73g%. Protein content was found in the range of 12.96-17.18g%. Ash content in the fish was found
to be in range of 1.47-11.76g%. Fat content was found in the range of 1.4-11.76g%. Carbohydrate content in the fish
was found to be in range of 1.04-3.5g%. Total calorie content in the fish was foimd to be in a range of 83.39-169.30
Kcal/lOOg.
