AbstractThe present study deals with estimation of percentage of red and white muscles fibers of two species of Teleost , which belongs to two different family she Aspius vorax which belongs to family Cyprinidae and Liza abu which belongs to family Mugilidae , The collection study sampling from AL-Hindia River by use Gill nets and Cost nets , The appear study Results has differ clear in ranges values to the study length groups , The present study shows the percentage of red muscles fibers were fewer than the white muscle fibers on different body regions (R1,R2,R3) among species .
The proportion of red muscle fibers values ranged between (0.8 - 13.5) % while were the proportions of white muscle fibers ranged between (86.50 - 99.19) % in studied fish , and showed reduce of proportions red and white muscle fibers toward the posterior region of fish body . Therefore, These species put in Sprinters fishes depend on the proportion of White muscle fibers in muscular system in fish body , This study proved first from two species on fishes
