Abstract: Study of proximate composition in different fresh water fishes is important to know the nutritional status of fishes. In the present study biochemical composition like protein was estimated from this study. It was estimated that the species Clarias batrachus contains more protein. The species that are experimented for protein conc. are Cirrhinus reba, Mystus vittatus, Puntius denisonni, Clarias batrachus and the results obtain are 2.167±0.01, 1.856±0.094, 2.254±0.094, 1.454±0.440 respectively.
Keywords: Cirrhinus reba, Mystus vittatus, Puntius denisonni, Clarias batrachus protein content
