Comparative Study of Fatty Acid Composition of Golden Mullet Fillet and Roe Oil (Liza aurata Risso, 1810)
Masoud Hedayatifard

Abstract:
In the present study, the fatty acid compositions of golden mullet fillet and roe oil were determined. Palmitic acid (C16:0) was the dominant saturated fatty acid in golden mullet fillet and roe oil with 14.39 and 6.45%, respectively. The major unsaturated fatty acids of golden mullet fillet oil, were detected as palmitoleic acid (C16:1, 17.32%), oleic acid (C18:1, 17.09%) and α-linolenic acid (C18:3, 8.72%). The most abundant unsaturated fatty acids of roe oil were determined as palmitoleic (C16:1, 21.33%), oleic (C18:1, 19.51%), α-linolenic (C18:3, 7.34%), Linoleic acid (C18:2, 6.77%) and docasahexaenoic acid (C22:6, 6.35%). The total unsaturated fatty acids of roe oil (68.59%) were higher than that of golden mullet fillet oil (56.37%). Amounts of ω-3 unsaturated fatty acids in the roe and fillet oil were 19.52 and 14.51%, respectively. Furthermore, the total amounts of eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5) and docasahexaenoic acid (C22: 6) of roe oil were nearly 2 times higher than those of the golden mullet fillet. Further, the lipid percentage and the amounts of C14:0, C16:0, C18:2, C18:3, C20:5 and C22:6 fatty acids differed significantly (p<0.05) between fillet and roe oil. In addition, significant differences were observed among ω-3 and ω-6 series between both fillet and roe oil.

Comparative Study of Fatty Acid Composition of Golden Mullet Fillet and Roe Oils (Liza aurata Risso, 1810)

This study supplied new information about fish fillet and roe fatty acid composition. Golden Mullet (Liza aurata)is one of the mos important of the boneyfish in the Casian Sea.
Please let me know that what is differnt between roe of boney and sturgeon fish? Caviar Vs Raw Roe?

Dr. J.M. Rosenberg:

Dear Colleague As you know Sturgeon egg has called "caviar" and egg for boney fish has called the "Roe". The caviar is valuable so much, nutritionally. Please compare both caviar and roe, in some tales in the related papers. Good Luck
