Makarona fish contains the highest crude protein, followed by Bagha, Basa and Denise; whereas the lowest was recorded in the Sardine Mabroom and Bori. Bagha fish contains the lowest total fat, followed by Filet National, Makarona, Morgan, Basa, but the highest was found in the Sardine Mabroom, followed by Bori. However, crude protein correlated negatively with total fat and ash; whereas ash correlated positively with total fat. Generally, and from the nutritive value point of view, Makarona, Bagha, Basa, and Denise fish are the best since they are the richest animal crude protein sources containing the lowest total fat percentages and moderate ash contents in the Saudi markets. Sardine contains the significantly highest concentration of Zn, Fe and Cu in Sardine, and the highest level of Cd in Mackerel. There was a significant positive correlation between Zn and Cu.
