Proximate composition and quality aspects of iced wild and pond-raised African catfish (Clarias gariepinus)

Proximate composition and shelf-life studies of wild and pond-raised catfish (Clarias gariepinus) were determined using chemical, microbiological and sensory analyses. Proximate composition of both wild and pond-raised catfish showed differences in the lipid and protein levels. The pond-raised fish had higher lipid (6.30%) and protein (20.00%) than the wild fish lipid (4.48%) and protein (18.05%). Whole ungutted wild...
