The trash fish has great economic importance with reference to lipids. The total lipids was extracted by soxhelet extraction method and is further analyzed for cholesterol phospholipid and glyceride. Recent research shows the utilization of lipids (fatty acids) obtained from trash in different medicinal and commercial purposes. Results were explained in relation with utilization of trash fish oil, which caught during fishing. It was observed that lipids contain vitamin A, C, D and E which depend upon the fish species. Fatty acids from the fish also used in manufacturing of soap, fungicides and insecticides. Pharmaceuticals for coronary diseases and heat resistant paints. This investigation may be beneficial in utilization of trash.
