Channa striata is considered as a potential food, because it is known to be used as the treatment of wounds, reduced pain, and as additional energy during illness. This fish is always consumed by rural peoples to having good medicinal qualities. But why this can happen need to be explored. This study was undertaken to determine the nutrients content and amino acid composition in Pasurua Channa striata extract (CSE). The Pasuruan CSE contained copper, iron, calcium, zinc and total protein with values: 0.01±0.001 mg/100 ml, 5.78±0.015 mg/100 ml, 2.26±0.020 mg/100 ml, 0.41±0.010 mg/100 ml, 5.524±0.020 g/100 ml, respectively. This extract was found contained at least 17 amino acids. The major amino acids are glutamat, lysine, leucine, asparagin, alanin, arginine and valin making up 1.494± 0.004 g/100g, 1.152±0.0006 g/100g, 0.956±0.0002 g/100g, 0.911±0.010 g/100g, 0.725±0.0005 g/100g , 0.624±0.0002 g/100g and 0.606±0.0009 g/100g extract, respectively. It is concluded that the CSE is a potential food containing complete and balanced of essential and non-essential amino acids.
