Five fresh water fishes namely Barilius pakistanicus; Garra gotyla; Carassius auratus; Schizothorax plagiostomus and Schizothorax labiatus were studied to assess proximate body composition namely moisture, fats, ash and protein content. The fish species were collected from river Swat during a period from April to August 2016 and transported to the department of zoology University of Peshawar Pakistan where weighted and biochemical analysis were carried out. The average moisture contents was (58.133 to 72.133) fats was (1.0000 to 6.0000), ash was (3.3333 to 8.0000) and protein was (14.667 to 22.667). The mean value of body constituents were statistically significant (P<0.05).This study showed that all the five fish species of family Cyprinidae are a good source of protein, while it is recommended for human health because of fewer fats in its body as compared to the other edible mass
