Musa Bulut, Osman Ozden, Sahin Saka and M. Kursat Firat    

Abstract: In this study, biochemical composition of fertilized dentex (Dentex dentex) eggs were examined and their protein, moisture, lipid and fatty acid contents were analyzed. The results showed that dentex eggs have 74.25±0.61% moisture, 11.57±0.25% protein, 2.57±0.07% ash and 4.97±0.07% lipid. Fatty acid analysis showed that dentex eggs contain 36.37±0.09% saturated fatty acid, 38.57±0.03% monosaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and 24.44±0.04% polyunsaturated fatty acids. The diameter of dentex eggs was 1.05±0.06 mm.
