Nutritive Evaluation of four Commercially Important edible Fishes (Caranx para, Cynoglossus dubius, Nemipterus Japonicus, Scomberoides commersonnianus) of Karachi Fish Harbour, Pakistan

Author(s): Rashida Qari, Moniba Shafaat


In present research four commercially important edible fish species Caranx para, Cynoglossus dubius, Nemipterus Japonicus and Scomberoides commersonnianus selected to determine carbohydrate, protein, ash, lipid etc. Protein content (20±3.4%) and ash content (33±3.6%) were high in the species of Scomberoides commersonnianus as compared to other species. which could make them more desirable from a nutritional standpoint. Both lipid content (16±2%) and carbohydrate content (40±4%) were high in Nemipterus japonicus as compared to other species. The finding indicates that there was little positive significant correlation found in between biochemical components of the fishes under investigation. The high ash percentage in all fish species under study indicated a significant mineral content and high protein and carbohydrate results indicates that all four studied species can utilize different food supplements, poultry feed and many byproduct (fish meal, manure and fish protein medicine). Enhancing knowledge of the nutritional profiles of the present fish species are aids in developing evidence-based dietary recommendations and promoting healthier eating habits. This research can inform dietary guidelines, particularly for communities reliant on local fisheries for food security and nutrition.
