Manivannan S, Meera M, Thanga Dhaya R, Geetha A, Sankaragomathi B

Fish is an essential living organism on earth. It is highly nutritious than any other consumable species. It is of high protein enriched food. Fish also serve as a vital thing for maintaining the food chain. Nowadays, overfishing has developed as a trend. It is due to the unknown and inadequate knowledge of the people who fish. Fish store a large number of ecosystem nutrients more than other aquatic animals and excrete nutrients in dissolved forms that are used by primary producers. Fish provides protein to more than one billion poor people daily. It provides nutrients and micronutrients that are essential to cognitive and physical development, especially in children, and are an integral part of a healthy diet. But it is suspected that fish might get depleted entirely by the year 2050.
From the study, we obtained the following formula:
Carbohydrate is calculated by using the formula Amount of carbohydrate present in 100mg of sample = (100mg of glucose / test sample volume) x 100
Protein can be estimated by using the formula Amount of protein present in 100mg of sample = %protein = (mg protein) (100) / (mg solid / ml reagent)
Fat calculations are made by using the formula Amount of fat present in 100mg of sample = (100mg of lipid /volume of the test sample) x 100
