Abstract: Proximate, amino acid, fatty acids and mineral composition of the muscle tissue of Arius subrostratus from Cochin estuary were analyzed. The present study revealed that the moisture, protein, lipid and crude ash of the species was 80.46 %, 17.65 %, 1.83 % and 1.24 % respectively. In this study eight essential amino acids were detected where lysine (10.21%) exhibited highest percentage of total amino acids detected. Major PUFA detected from this study were linoleic acid (C18:2), linolenic acid (C18:3), eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5) and docosahexaenoic acid (C20:6). Among the minerals obtained phosphorus (47.80%) contributed major percentage. Hence the study reveals muscle tissues of Arius subrostratus contain high amount of protein, rich source of iron and other essential nutrients good for our health and well being.
