The aim of the current study is to assess the influence of salt on the chemical composition of fermented, salty and dry catfish (lanhouin) in Benin. Different flours of fish were produced and their chemical composition was evaluated based on conventional methods of analysis. From the results obtained, the Catfish is rich in dry matter (76.640 ± 0.162 to 88.050 ± 0.085%), total ash (3.660 ± 0.064 to 23.000 ± 0.020%), total protein (5.425 ± 0.194 to 64.405 ± 1.785%) and total lipids (11.495 ± 0.009 to 1 7.875 ± 0.357%). Essential amino acids are in abundance in the fermented catfish. From the quantitative point of view, it was noticed that at high concentration (salting to more than 20%) salt is the chemical composition of the catfish. This resulted in the decrease of makers in lipids, protein and amino acids on the one hand, and on the other hand, by the high concentration of markers in dry matter and total ash. Statistical analyses showed a significant difference with of protein, ash, dry matter and amino acids; where as lipids there is no significant difference at 5%. Qualitatively, the catfish contains all nutrients (proteins, amino acids, lipids, etc.).
