Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the proximate and biochemical profile of fish, Labeo boga during the pre monsoon and monsoon season. The proximate profile was found to be high during pre monsoon (pre spawning season) season with the protein and lipid content was found to be highest during month of may i.e. 17.84±0.03 for protein and 3.70±0.01 for lipid; while the low proximate content was observed during monsoon (spawning season) season with the lowest content for protein and lipid observed during july i.e. 15.94±0.04 for protein and 1.52±0.01 for lipid. Also, biochemical profile showed marked variation between pre monsoon and monsoon season. Lowest concentration for serum biochemical parameters were observed in march i.e. 67.32±0.03mg/dl for Glucose, 49.20±0.01mg/dl for LDH, 75.20±0.02IU/L for ALP, 29.50±0.01IU/L for SGOT, 26.84±0.02IU/L for SGPT and 88.54±0.02mg/dl for Cholesterol while highest concentration was recorded during june i.e. 112.31±0.04mg/dl for Glucose, 61.50±0.04mg/dl for LDH, 97.32±0.02IU/L for ALP, 34.30±0.04IU/L for SGOT, 36.84±0.06IU/L for SGPT, 130.52±0.01mg/dl for Cholesterol; thus showing variable biochemical response of fish with the changing season. Thus conducted studies revealed the significant variation (p<0.05) in the proximate and biochemical profile of fish in the two studied seasons and such information can help the consumer in making choice for nutritious food based on information.
