Fishing is one of the oldest occupations in Sudan. Fishing has assumed much importance in view of the rapidly growing population and depleting land resources. Fish confirm a very nutritional part of man’s diet. It is rich in protein. It contains a good selection of minerals and vitamins. This study was conducted in estimating these biochemical components. 300 samples of Nylotic fish were tested. It was found that the levels of sodium is 72-85mg/100 g, potassium 279-380, calcium 79-210, magnesium 38-95, iron 1.55-3.4, zinc 0.96-1.34, copper 0.20-1.4. The vitamins tested were found to be 70-350(I.U) for vitamin A and 1.5-3.6 μg/g for vitamin C. The protein was found to be 15-20% whereas the fat 20-30%.
