The present study aimed to define of meat yield, amino acid composition, fatty acid composition, lipid quality values of Prussian carp (Carassius gibelio Bloch, 1782), which has shown rapid population growth in recent years. In addition, the adverse effects of this fish on other fish populations in the Bafra lake of Samsun (Turkey) were investigated.
Mean meat yield and condition factor of the fish were determined as (23.45 ± 0.26%) and (1.65 ± 0.01), respectively. The protein value was determined to be 17.56% ± 0.36%, and the fat value was 3.21 ± 0.23%. The total amino acid value was calculated as 18.96 ± 0.06, the EAA value as 8.68 ± 0.03, and the NEAA value as 10.28 ± 0.09 g/100 g. Examining the fatty acid composition, the ƩSFA value was 28.49 ± 0.45%, the ƩMUFA value was 29.32 ± 0.41%, the ƩPUFA value was 40.68 ± 0.32, the EPA value was 7.82 ± 0.12%, and the DHA value was 13.49 ± 0.38%.
It was determined that Prussian carp, an invasive species in many water sources in Turkey, has high protein and low-fat content and is a valuable food source in terms of fatty acids.
