Fish are a good nutritional source of proteins, essential fatty acids and minerals. People with high fish intake have lower rates of acute myocardial infarctions and atherosclerosis, better cognitive functions and better neural and visual development in fetus. In the present work, we evaluated the seasonal variations in nutritional value of Channa striatus including total carbohydrate, protein and lipid content with respect to three seasons i.e. pre-monsoon, post monsoon and winter season of Narmada River from Bandhrabhan, Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh. Nutritional components like carbohydrate, protein and lipids are severely influenced with the change in season and water quality parameters. The nutritional analysis showed that all the main three nutritional components i.e. Protein, carbohydrate and lipid content of Channa striatus is seen maximum in the winter season followed by post-monsoon and pre-monsoon. In general results suggested that the Channa striatus fish species of Narmada River of winter season contains the best nutritive value as compared to pre monsoon and post-monsoon. Hence consumption is more beneficial in winter season.
