The chemical composition of Haplochromis and Rastraneobola argenta fish meals

Discovery & Innovation 7(2): 107-109
The chemical composition of Haplochromis and Rastraneobola argenta fish meals
Chemical analyses were conducted on representative samples of fresh Haplochromis and Rastraneobola argenta fish meals. The materials were obtained from the open market and re-dried at 50 degree C for 12 hr and ground to a fine consistency prior to the analyses. Haplochromis meal contained 53% protein which was 5.5% lower than that of Rastraneobola argenta meal. It also contained three times as much calcium and twice as much phosphorus as its counterpart. Rastraneobola meal on the other hand contained more fat than Haplochromis meal and had a higher concentration of the essential amino acids, especially Methionine and lysine. Generally the composition of these fish meals were similar to those of the other fresh water fish meals reported by March et al. (1967).
