Abstract


The experiment was conducted for a period of 6 months to investigate the quality of the meat from Chana marulius in 2 earthen ponds (T1 and T2). Each pond was stocked at a rate of 30 Chana marulius. In T1, compost (cow dung) was added and inorganic fertilizers (nitrophos) on a weekly basis. In T2, tilapia fish was stocked as forage for Chana marulius. After the final harvest, samples were taken from the meat of experimental fish ponds and were studied for proximate composition. Presented data was obtained by statistical analysis using ANOVA and DMR tests. T2 showed the highest protein (17.50%), fat (2.50%) and ash (1.93%) contents. T1 showed less protein (15.75%), fat (2.25%) and ash (1.85%) contents. While the moisture (76.00%) and carbohydrates (2.07%) contents decrease in T2. T1 showed higher moisture (77.92%) and carbohydrates (2.23%) contents.
