In this study, proximate composition of Stichopus herrmanni divers from Hormozgan province which were caught by diving, during autumn and winter 2016 and spring and summer 2017, determined. For this, one station was selected in each province, three specimens from each three replication of different seasons sampled. In nutrition laboratory, all specimens from replication of each season of separated province, minced and analyzed proximate compositions protein, lipid, Ash and Humidity based on standard methods. Results showed that the studied sea cucumber species compromised relative high protein level (P<0.05). The highest protein content was found in Hormozgan at summer season (15±3.69) and lowest not significantly in Bushehr at autumn season (10±1.73) at spring season (10±1.8), caused by higher WT. and consequently higer chlorophyll a contents in Hormozgan water at summer season compare to samples from other studies provinces at the same seasons. Humidity percentage were the highest in the sea cucumber caught at winter (86.1±8.43) and not significantly (P>0.05), while the lowest (P<0.05) was obtained from Hormozgan samples at spring season (81.1±5.63). Lipid contents with low levels in this species showed the highest in winter season (0.29±0.08) and the lowest lipid content was obtained from sampled in Hormozgan province at Summer time (0.12±0.02) (P<0.05).
