The present study has been conducted in order to find out chemical, physical and biological properties of oil Extracted from Freshwater Edible Crab (Barytelphusa Cunicularis
). The freshwater crab Barytelphusa cunicularis
is a main species in Marathwada region. The crabs are collected from local market of Aurangabad (MS) India. We analyzed oil and estimated its different values such as saponification value, free fatty acid value, peroxide value. Furthermore oil is subjected to other tests such as: Cholesterol test, Acrolein Test, Qualitative test of Vitamin A, solubility test, protein test, Density test, Refractive index, and Antimicrobial activity test. Outcomes are discussed in details.
