Chemical composition of an ecotype tilapia of Epe lagoon commonly called ‘“Wesafu”’

The chemical composition of wild and domesticated “Wesafu”, an ecotype cichlid found abundantly in Epe Lagoon fisheries in Lagos, south-western coast of Nigeria and a private fish farm in Badagry, Lagos, was investigated for proximate, mineral, fatty acid and amino acid compositions. The proximate compositions of the two specimens were found to be similar except for crude protein contents of 16.80 and 19.51%...
