Evaluation of nutritional quality of Clarias gariepinus from selected fish farms in Oyo, Ekiti and Ondo States in Nigeria was carried out by analyzing the proximate composition, trace elements, fatty acids and cholesterol levels of the fish. A total of nine (09) commercial fish farms namely: Durante Fish Industries (DuranteeOy), Hillary Sydenham Fish Farms (HillaryOy), Azimor Agric Biz (AzimorOy), Concentrated Fish Farms (ConcEk), ASAE Fish Farms (AsaeEk), ABUAD Farms (AbuadEk), Dafed Fish Farms (DafedOd), Obembe Fish Farms (ObembeOd) and Ondo State Government Farms (OSGFOd) were purposively selected for the research based on output. Five kilogram of live fish samples of average weight (1kg/one) were randomly collected twice at three months interval in a production circle of six months from each farm for laboratory analysis using standard procedures. The proximate analysis of both wet and dry samples showed that all the samples examined were good source of protein with mean values ranging from 22.0% in fresh to 46.6% in dried fish sample.
