Abstract: The proximate, fatty acid and amino acid compositions of the skinned fillets of the Brazilian freshwater fish Prochilodus scrofa were determined. The water, protein, lipid and ash contents (%) were: 76·5 ± 2·2, 20·4 ± 1·0, 2·7 ± 1·5 and 1·3 ± 0·0, respectively. The marked variation in total lipid content was reflected in the fatty acid composition where qualitative and quantitative differences could be discerned between samples. The principal fatty acids were palmitic, oleic, palmitoleic, stearic, linolenic and linoleic acids. The amino acid composition showed that the P. scrofa proteins were high in lysine and methionine but low in cysteine/cystine. © 1983.
