The present study reports on the proximate composition of mince collected from small indigenous fishes collected from reservoirs of Uttaranchal. The results revealed that mince from low value fishes is also good source of animal protein and other important nutrients. Even though the mince has sustained some functional loss during the frozen storage; the average decrease in proximate composition at each slab of 15th days storage for 0-180th days of the total storage duration was not remarkable but was found marginal. The results for protein, moisture and fat content were found to decrease between 0-180th days in range of 22.00�0.26 to 4.18�0.14, 81.42�0.75 to 40.15�0.72 and 2.45� 0.98 to 0.67�0.087 respectively. The results represents, the proximate composition of different small indigenous fish more or equal to other large carp species, though the price is very lower than large species of fish. The findings of present study revealed that these small fishes are very good source of animal protein.
