dc.description.abstract Changes in proximate composition of soft tissue of rock oyster Saccostrea cucullata inhabiting a polluted station at Bandra (stn. B) and a relatively clean area at Mudh Island (stn. M) were studied. An average protein content of 48.88 + or - 3.73 and 53.68 + or - 3.59% were recorded respectively for oysters from stns. M and B and the difference was significant (P less than 0.01). Mean carbohydrate content in oysters from stn. M amounted to 14.69 + or - 3.22 whereas at stn. B it was 8.79 + or - 1.61 and the difference was found highly significant (P less than 0.001). However, appreciable variation between stations was not observed in lipid and carbon content in oysters. Suitable period for harvesting of these organisms has been suggested
