Abstract: The present paper reveals the proximate composition of fish which is the most important aspect in fish nutrition. Small indigenous fishes (SIF) are very tasty and costly as compared to other small fishes. It may be due to its highly nutritive value. In this present study, an attempt has been made to estimate the moisture and lipid content of some selected small indigenous fishes of Manipur namely Channa striatus (Bloch) locally called as Porom, Trichogaster fasciatus (Schneider) locally called as Ngapemma and Puntius sophore (Hamilton-Buchanan) locally called as Phabounga. Channa striata, Trichogaster fasciatus and Puntius sophore contain 80.11 %, 78.05 % and 78.95 % moisture respectively. Lipid content was found to be 1.66 %, 5.93 % and 2.34 % respectively. Trichogaster fasciatus contains highest lipid value. These values are useful references for consumers in order to choose fish based on their nutritional contents.
