  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.

  Chromosomal and karyotypic studies are required for genetic improvement of any organisms. This study was performed to identify individual chromosomes on morphological basis and to characterize a standard karyotype using the fish, Rohu (Labeo rohita, Hamilton, 1822). Colchicine (0.05%) treated (2, 2.5 and 3 h) tissues of two day-old larvae were used for slide preparations and selected plates were photomicrographed under high resolution research microscope. Slide preparations were done following hydrolysis (10% HCl), mordanting (2% iron alum) and staining with haematoxylin. Colchicine treatment for 2 h gave satisfactory results in respect of degree of contraction of the chromosomes. Chromosome number 2n = 50 was counted at metaphase stage. Measurements of the chromosomes were taken from the selected plates based on morphologically distinct condition. Standard haploid karyotype was formulated following the combined scatter diagram technique. Six individually identifiable and 19 not individually identifiable chromosomes consisted of the haploid complement. The six individually identifiable ones consisted of 2 m+3 sm+1st and not individually identifiable ones consisted of 16 m+3 sm chromosomes. This study report may provide complete report on chromosomal and karyotype knowledge in L. rohita and suggest the genetic purity of L. rohita may contributes to sustainable aquaculture production.
