The marine edible gastropod Ficus ficoides was collected from Vanjiure coast and its biochemical composition quantified in different organs such as whole animal, Foot, Mantle, Gill, Hepatopancreas, Testis & Ovary sex wise by using a standard methods. The percentage of total protein, Carbohydrate and lipid range was recorded in different organs of male F.ficoides was WA, F, M, G, HP, & T was (22.19-25.23, 44.98-47.50, 34.24-45.73, 35.23-42.99, 43.08-46.85 and 35.63-39.12) (12.39-18.34, 11,80-16.41, 15.51-17.97, 17.76-20.50,15.80-20.00 & 15.22-18.59) and (21.75-23.91, 17.74-26.46, 22.28-23.34, 18.93-22.62, 22.95-24.97 & 26.51-29.71) respectively. In female it was WA, F, M, G, HP, & O was (20.95-23.90, 35.14-38.48, 31.41-35.92, 34.13-40.41, 33.39-37.76 & 29.08-34.05), (11.96-14.25, 10.31-13.00, 11.63-14.21, 14.57-16.90, 12.00-16.33 & 10.84-15.73) and (18.19-21.61, 17.03-21.56, 15.40-20.24, 15.84-21.40, 15.01-21.49 & 22.54-25.67) respectively. Season wise the maximum and minimum biochemical content recorded and analyzed in different organs and the F- value of ANOVA shows significance at alpha 0.05 in both male and female animal. Present study result shows the seasonal variations of protein, carbohydrate and lipid content is due to the availability of food and growth of this study animal.
