SUMMARY Introduction: Protein albumin in the wound healing process is very important to stimulate the formation of new cell tissue damaged during surgery. One way is by giving Human Serum Albumin (HSA). However, the price for this is expensive. The wound healing process can be stimulated by providing alternative albumin from cork fish and utilizing albumin from eels. The purpose of this study was to compare the albumin levels in cork and eel fish. Methods: This type of research was a posttest-only control experimental design. The research sample was obtained from the Pacar Keling regional market, Surabaya, totaling 32 samples. The sampling technique used was purposive sampling. To compare the albumin levels between cork fish and eel fish, the data was analyzed using the t-test independent sample test with an error rate of α = 0.05. Results: The average albumin level in cork fish was 25,7169 % and the average albumin level in eels was 16,9169 %. From the results, both samples (cork and eel fish) have an average yield of albumin levels of 8.8 %. Cork fish had a higher albumin level compared to the albumin level of eels. The independent test results show sig 0.0001 < 0.05. This indicates that there is a difference in the albumin level between cork fish and eels. Conclusion: The difference in albumin levels in cork and eel fish is caused by weight factors, environmental factors, and food availability factors. An intervention may be provided as an alternative to support the albumin need. Keywords: Albumin, cork fish, eel.
