Abstract

The present study on the biochemical composition of Sardinella longiceps was enumerated from head, trunk and tail region throughout the year from Sonmiani coast, Balochistan. In total 60 samples were collected 30 each in winter and summer respectively. Results of the present research showed that moisture was observed highest in head region (71.0%) followed trunk and tail region (70.0%) in winter season. While in case of summer season highest percentage of moisture was observed in head region (70.58%) followed by trunk and tail region (68.66%, 68.57%). Highest percentage of protein was observed in trunk (16.21%) followed by tail and head region (15.36%, 15.30%) respectively in winter season. While in case of summer season trunk possess (15.53%) followed by head region (14.53%) and low in tail region (11.48%). Lipid percentage was found high in trunk region (14.40%) followed by tail region (14.33%) and lowest in head region (10.33%) in winter season. In summer season percentage of fat was observed maximum in tail region (13.04%) followed by trunk (13.04%) and low in head region (12.0%).In terms of carbohydrate percentage, it was found in less amount. It was concluded that trunk region of Sardinella longiceps considered excellent and healthier part in terms of nutrition throughout the year
