Abstract

In fishes fat accumulates mostly in muscles, liver, intestine and gonads for utilization during the reproductive activity (Milroy, 1898; Bruce, 1924; Channon and Saby, 1932; Lovern and Wood, 1937; Hickling, 1947; Bailey, 1952; Hoar, 1957; Love, 1957). Previous investigations (Milroy, 1898; Lovern and Wood, 1937; Hickling, 1947) revealed that during maturation the fats which are stored in various organs are transferred to maturing gonads.
