The proximate composition and mineral contents of aqua cultured sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and sea bream (Sparus aurata) of Aegean Sea were investigated. There were significant differences between moisture, fat and ash contents of the two species. Sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, zinc and iodine values for sea bass and sea bream were significantly different (p < 0.05). (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
