The present study was carried out from the laboratory culture; Mesocyclops leuckarti collected from Mombatta Lake at Daulatabad was sieved through 42 µm plankton net. 100 mg of cultured Mesocyclops leuckarti was taken for the biochemical estimation. The biochemical composition of Mesocyclops leuckarti shown the protein content was 58.33 ± 0.55% dry weight, lipid was 10.16 ± 0.10% dry weight, carbohydrates was 18.10 ± 0.24% dry weight and the water content was 93.25 ± 0.77%.
