Abstract :Present study deals with estimation of total tissue lipid content from different body parts of freshwater crab Sartoriana spinigera. The result showed the value of average lipid concentration in abdomen, cheliped & walking leg wet muscle of S. spinigera (50.71-95.10g) during summer season (20oC-26oC) was 45.167±10.169 mg/g, 13.33±13.84 mg/g, 12.5±12.47mg/g and showed a positive correlation (b=0.306; r=0.97), (b=0.347; r=0.81), (b=0.338; r=0.87) between body weight and lipid concentration.
