There are over 150 species of the cichlid genus Huplochrornis in Lake Victoria constituting a major underexploited food resource. As an aid to the processing of the deepwater stock, chemical composition data were obtained for the whole fish (separated into weight groups) and for the head, viscera, flesh and residual portions separately. Data are reported for lipid content, fatty acid composition, crude protein, true protein, amino acid composition, ash and moisture content.
