Abstract:

The Macrobrachium dayanum, a locally available freshwater prawn of Jammu was sampled regularly for a period of one year to analyze the seasonal variation in the lipid contents of muscles, hepatopancreas and ovary. Remarkable variation in the lipid content in different tissues of M. dayanum has been analyzed during the study period. Changes in the lipid content in all the three tissues were observed to be statistically significant (p<0.05). Lipids in muscles corresponds to 0.230.11 and 3.830.11%, minimum and maximum value in the month of September and December respectively. In hepatopancreas minimum of 5.050.21% in August and maximum of 9.310.41% in February have been observed. Mean value of lipid content in the ovaries range from 6.140.24% (minima) to 9.760.80% (maxima) in July and April respectively. Moreover, maximum numbers of stage IV oocytes are observed in the ovary in the months of March-April and August to October accompanied with increase in the lipid content during these respective months.
