A Critical Study on Seasonal Variation in Major Minerals (Ca, P, K, Mg) and Proximate Composition in Flesh of Mesopotamian Catfish (Silurus triostegus Heckel, 1843) from Turkey

A Critical Study on Seasonal Variation in Major Minerals (Ca, P, K, Mg) and Proximate Composition in Flesh of Mesopotamian Catfish (Silurus triostegus Heckel, 1843) from Turkey

Seasonal variations in major minerals (Ca, P, K, Mg) and proximate composition of Mesopotamian catfish (Silurus triostegus Heckel, 1843) were investigated in this research. Depending on age, sex, climate, season, catch area, and processing method, the mineral and proximate composition of fish varies greatly from one species to another and from one individual to another. Seasonally, fish samples were collected by fishing from Atatürk Dam Lake, which is situated within Turkey’s boundaries (37oC45N’ latitude/38oC17E’ longitude). Ca, P, K, and Mg mean values were found to be 92.599.81 g/g, 1447.56117.38 g/g, 2762.50418.00 g/g, and 227.2639.79 g/g (wet weight), respectively. Summer was found to have the highest mineral content. Autumn had the highest crude protein content (18.88%), while winter had the lowest (16.88 percent ). The average lipid content was found to be between 4.22 and 6.56 percent, with winter having the highest value. The findings revealed substantial variations in major minerals and proximate composition between the four seasons (P0.05). As compared to other economically important freshwater species in Turkey, the Mesopotamian catfish from Atatürk Dam Lake (Turkey, Adiyaman) has a high lipid content, a low amount of major minerals, and a low protein content. The highest levels of major minerals were found in Mesopotamian catfish (S. triostegus) during the summer.
