Baby fish is a term for fish fingerlings or for small-sized fish. Processed baby fish, which is fried, is very popular in West Java. This study was aimed to determine the difference of amino acid profile and the tissues description of baby common carp at various harvest time. The selected harvest time is three, five, and seven weeks. The amino acid profile was determined by HPLC. The total amino acids content of baby common carp increased with the increasing of the harvest time. The total dry basis amino acids content of baby common carp at the harvest time of three, five, and seven weeks, in a row, were 45.69%, 46.58%, and 60.46%. The highest amino acid content of baby fish in every harvest time was glutamate, while the lowest amino acid content was histidine and methionine. The myomer of baby common carp histologically developed with the increasing of the harvest time. The number of mucus-secreting cells and nutrition-absorbent cells in baby common carp’s intestinal also increased in the older baby common carp.
