Present study was undertaken to observe the influence of dietary protein on proximate body composition of Mori (Cirrhinusmrigala) from Govt. Fish Hatchery, Mian Chanu, District Khanewal. Mean percentage values for water, fat, protein and ash contents determined in the whole wet body weight of Cirrhinusmrigala were 76.86, 2.91, 16.89 and 3.33% respectively. Higher average protein, fat, ash and minimum water percentage were observed with increasing crude protein in artificial fed. Percentage of fat, ash, protein and water observed (35% crude protein) was 3.18%, 2.87%, 18.48% and 75.46% respectively. This was estimated that with the increase of protein level in diet, fish highly grow in size. Body composition of fish was affected with dietary protein in artificial diet. The information of these parameters helps to select Cirrhinusmrigala as major diet because it contains higher protein content and is suitable for human consumption.
