Rohu – Labeo Rohita, is a species of the carp family, found in rivers of the Indian subcontinent and extensively used in aquaculture. The large silver colored Rohu fish is an important aquacultured freshwater species and very commonly eaten in India and also considered a delicacy in Bhojpur. Although a diet consisting of fish is supposed to be healthy, it is not found on the plate so often.
The flesh is white, tender, smooth in texture and mild with practically no “fishy” taste. Just about anyone should find it enjoyable – but, Rohu does, like all carp, have a “spine problem” similar to Milkfish (Bangus), a fish in a related order. The texture is white, non-oily and tasty. It is an excellent source of high-quality protein and also rich in omega 3 fatty acids, beneficial to the heart. It contains Vitamin C. They are also good sources of vitamin D and niacin.
