Proximate composition of viscera of major, common and some Chinese carps under the effect of different fertilization schemes and feed supplementation in composite culture systems
Shahid Mahboob, A. N. Sheri
The proximate composition of viscera of six fish species viz., Catla catla, Labeo, rohita Cirrhina mrigala, Hypophthalmichthys molitrix, Ctenopharyngodon idella and Cyprinus carpio under the influence of artificial feed (T1), broiler manure (T2), buffalo manure (T3), N:P:K (25:25:0 T4) and control pond (T5) has been studied on final harvest after the end of experimental period of one year. The overall comparison of six fish species under five different treatments showed that Cyprinus carpio remained the best for visceral total protein contents. The maximum visceral protein content was recorded in fishes under T2 except Cirrhina mrigala, while the minimum under T5. The comparison of five treatments showed that maximum (6.69) percentage of fat in viscera of fish was recorded under T2, closely followed by T4 while minimum (4.89) under the effect of T5. Among the six fish species under five treatments Cyprinus carpio showed maximum accumulation/deposition of total fats in viscera.
