Abstract

The biochemical compositions of green mussel P.viridis were analyzed. The percentage of protein was high followed by the carbohydrate and lipid. The total essential amino acids were found to be higher than the non- essential amino acids. Seven vitamins were detected and among that vitamin A and C were found to be high. Totally six macro minerals and 2 trace minerals were reported. The result showed that marine bivalve P.viridis is a valuable food source for human consumption, due to its high quality protein and well-balanced nutritional composition. Keywords:
