  Fish play an important role in Bangladeshi diet, constituting the main and often irreplaceable animal source food in poor rural households. The study focused on the proximate composition of Labeo bata both in moisture and dry matter basis. The established AOAC (Association of Official Agricultural Chemist, USA) methods were followed for nutrient composition of fish. In case of moisture basis the percentage of moisture, protein, lipid, ash and carbohydrate was 72.41±0.81, 18.51±0.31, 3.79±0.25, 4.67±0.18, 0.90±0.03, respectively, while in dry matter basis it was 27.64±0.17, 66.75±0.39, 13.44±0.08, 16.63±0.20, 3.51±0.17, respectively. This result indicates that except moisture all other components are higher in dry matter basis than moisture basis. As the fish contain high level of protein will be helpful to reduce the protein demand of the country.

  This study was carried out in greater Noakhali region (Lakshmipur, Noakhali and Feni) to evaluate the type of aqua-chemicals used in aquaculture activities where data were collected through questionnaire interview, Focus Group Discussion (FCD), personal contact with fish farmers, hatchery and nursery owner, farm workers. A variety of aqua drugs and chemicals including antibiotics have been using in the region by farmers for fish health management and increasing production. Aqua-chemicals were commonly used for pond preparation, disease control and treatment of the carps, tilapia, prawns and weed fishes. Carps show very positive results when they were treated against the diseases, Motile Aeromonas Septicaemia (MAS), Epizootic Ulcerative Syndrome (EUS), Saprolegniasis, Argulosis, Fin rot, Dropsy, Ichthyophthiriasis with oxytetracycline, potassium permanganate, sumithione, malachite green, dipterex, pillar sulfan, secofon, timsen, geolite and lime. The study also identified the problems associated with the use of chemicals which included lack of knowledge regarding the use of chemicals, appropriate dose, method of application and indiscriminate use of chemicals.

  Successful aquaculture highly depends on ensuring the quality feed which mostly depends on the proper feedstuffs selection and the manufacturing process. This study was undertaken to monitor the deviation of protein level and the mechanical effects on different biofactors viz. protein, moisture, ash, crude lipid and fiber in feed during manufacture. Samples were collected at randomly and batch wise from the prominent feed industry during the production period. Samples were collected from two different production level viz. ‘Final Mixer’ and ‘Finished Feed’ and third other sample was prepared as ‘Control Mixer’ on the dry basis. All the samples were analyzed by using proper analytical procedure in the laboratory of fish nutrition. The percentage of protein content was 17.9 in control mixer and 18.46 in final mixer which finally decreased to 17.03% in finished feed. In control mixer ash content was 25.74 and 23.1% in final mixer which increased in finished feed to 24.68%. Lipid content increased in finished feed (6.1%) rather than the final mixer (5.95%) and the control mixer (3.75%). However, crude fiber content decreased from control mixer to finished feed thoroughly. Crude fiber content in control mixer was 7.4% which decreased to 6.86 and 6.56% in final mixer and finished feed respectively. Again a relation may be drawn between the moisture content and ash and lipid content with crude fiber. By this study it was observed quality of feed is highly influenced by quality machine.
