Abstract

The study evaluated the dressing percentage, nutritional quality and mineral composition of six commercial fish species (Scads, Alepes djedaba, Emperors, Lethrinus lent/an, Kingfish, Scomberomorus commerson, Jobfish, Lutjanus malabaricus, Coral trout, Plectropomus maculates and Groupers, Epinephelus chlorostigma) from the Arabian gulf coast of Saudi Arabia. The Kingfish (Scomberomorus commerson) showed the highest (90.9%) dressing percentage followed by Grouper (80.6%) and Coral trout (80.3%) whereas the lowest (72.9%) was for Emperors, scad fish (Alepes djedaba) had lowest skin and bone weights. Significant (p-1) in fish muscles was observed in Coral trout. Significant (p-1, respectively). It is concluded that these fish species contribute towards a safe, healthy and nutritious food for human consumption.
