The current study aimed to analyze the proximate composition and selected mineral content (Iron and Calcium) of an indigenous fish species of Bangladesh: Gudusia chapra, which is locally known as Khoyra or Chapila fish. Fish samples were collected from three local markets of Jashore district. Regarding proximate analysis, moisture, ash, protein and fat content were analyzed by standard official methods of AOAC. Iron (Fe) content was determined by spectrophotometric method and Calcium (Ca) content was determined by calcium oxalate precipitation method. It was seen that the moisture content was about seventy-eight percent (78%); ash (total minerals) content was only about one percent (1%); crude protein content was about eighteen percent (18%); crude lipid content was about three percent (3%). No available carbohydrate was observed in the fish. Fe content of the fish sample was 0.78mg/100g and Ca content was 0.42mg/100g of fresh sample basis.
