Abstract The slaughter value of 10 beavers (7-19 years old and 15.5-20.8 kg of weight) was estimated. It was found that the slaughter yield is equal to 54.5%. The beaver carcass has 73% of meat, 20% of bones and 7% of fat. This meat has a high content of proteins typical for wild animals. The intramuscular-fat contains a high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids (16.15%). It was also found that this meat contains a high concentration of minerals and particularly hem iron.
Keywords: beaver, slaughter value, tissue composition, chemical composition
