This study reports the biochemical composition of three important edible commercial fish species (1. Liza vaigiensis 2. Rastrelliger kanagurta 3. Scomberoides tol) collected during surveys of fish harbor Dam Sonmiani Balochistan coast in February, 2017. The results demonstrate that protein value ranging from 40-52%, lipid 4-6%, carbohydrate 13.3-22%, ash 20-37.5%, moisture 2-6% and water 70.7-73.7%. This study records length, width and weight of each species too. There was positive significant relationship found in between biochemical constituents of all studied fishes.
