One of the selected species for the diversification of traditional marine species is the wreckfish Polyprion americanus due to its growth potential, high larval growth index during its pelagic life phase (Kentouri et al 1995, Papandroulakis et al 1997), the quality of its flesh and its high commercial value. Studies on wreckfish nutritional requirements and optimum diets are missing. There are only a few references related to feeding habitats from commercial caught (Brick Peres & Haimovi, 2003) and feeding rates in captivity (Papandroulakis et al., 2004) . Recently a study about composition of Mediterranean Sea wreckfish was published (Roncarati et al.,2014). The aim of this work is collecting information of the composition of different tissues of wild wreckfish to contribute the development of a specific formulation of a diet for wreckfish broodstock.
