Abstract


The objective of the study was to conduct a nutritional analysis (proximate composition and mineral composition) of a small indigenous fish species, striped spiny eel: Macrognathus pancalus. It is locally known as Pakal fish. Fish specimens were obtained from the local markets (Boro bazar, Jhikorgacha market, Doratana market) of Jashore district. All the nutritional analysis was done by standard AOAC methods. Findings from the study showed that the moisture percentage was about 77%; ash percentage was about 2%; crude protein percentage was (18%); crude lipid percentage was 3%. Fe content of the fish sample was 0.62mg/100g and Ca content was 0.13mg/100g of fresh sample.
