Abstract:To observe the variation of chemical composition of Cirrhina molitorella, 22 specimenswith a body length (L) of 102~201 mm, body weight (W) of 24.19~228.17 g and age from 0~3 year were collected from the lower reaches of Hanjiang River in June, 2010, and divided into 4 groups according to the age. Chemical compositions are measured and energy density is estimated. The results showed that the contents of water (WAT), protein (PRO), lipid (FAT) and ash (represented by percentage of them in fresh body weight of fish, respectively) ranged 72.79%~75.54%, 12.99%~17.06%, 8.18%~12.88%, and 2.35%~3.38%, respectively. The energy density (E) ranged 5.03~7.36 kJ/g. With the increase of age, body PRO, FAT and Eincreased, while WAT decreased. The content of ash varies erratically. PRO, FAT and Eare all positively correlated with age, while WAT is negatively correlated with L. The contents of PRO, FAT and E are all negatively correlated with the content of WAT. The results suggest that the contents of PRO, FAT and E of C. molitorella can be estimated by the content of water or body length.
