Abstract

Present study was carried out, at Dardanelles and the Marmara Sea coasts during March 2011 to February 2012. Ostrea edulis, Mytilus gallopro, Ruditapes decussa, Ruditapes pheleppirnarum and Rapona venosa were collected seasonally along with temperature and salinity. Biochemical composition of molluscs (protein, lipid, carbohydrate, moisture and ash) was examined from the samples. Seasonal values of protein, lipid, carbohydrate, ash and moisture were mean 64.71 +/- 1.31%, 1.86 +/- 0.10%, 24.09 +/- 1.33%, 9.35 +/- 0.26% and 67.51 +/- 1.47% in R.venosa; 55.88 +/- 2.04%, 5.60 +/- 0.19%, 23.43 +/- 1.59%, 15.10 +/- 0.67% and 83.28 +/- 0.86% inR. philipinarium; 56.27 +/- 1.98%, 5.82 +/- 0.34%, 23.39 +/- 1.62%, 14.53 +/- 0.66% and 83.58 +/- 0.59% in R. decussatus; 54.03 +/- 2.82%, 10.52 +/- 1.22%, 22.84 +/- 4.33%, 12.61 +/- 2.54% and 82.45 +/- 1.70% in M. galloprovincialis; 48.11 +/- 3.04%, 8.81 +/- 0.65%, 29.16 +/- 4.62%, 13.92 +/- 1.89% and 82.25 +/- 2.66% in O. edulis, respectively. Consequently, the sampled mollusc species has high protein (40.19 - 67.38 %) and low lipid (1.65 - 12.86 %). Overall, R. venosa appears to be best as diet with relatively high protein and low lipid among other examined molluscs.
