Abstract:

The present study was carried out to estimate the effect of the industrial effluent discharge on proximate composition of commercial landing six fish species in Gulf of Mannar. It was found that, there was variation in moisture, fat and ash content (Sardinella longiceps, Selaroides leptolepis, Epinephelus quoyanus and Lethrinus lentjan) between the industrial and non-industrial area and also the fat and ash had a statistical significance at 5 and 10% level but no significant change in Penaeus semisulcatus and Portunus sanguinolentus. However, this study concludes that there was a negative impact of industrial pollution discharge on the proximate composition of commercial landing of fish species. Therefore, future studies should emphasis micronutrient assessment of the commercial landing species between the industrial and non-industrial area for better understanding changes.
