This research aims to describe the biochemical composition of fertilized eggs of striped bream, Pagellus erythrinus (Linnaeus, 1758) and their protein, ash, moisture, lipid and fatty acid % contents. The results showed that striped bream eggs have a value of moisture, protein, ash and lipid; 74.20±0.6, 11.27±1.15, 2.03±0.20 and 4.73±0.15%, respectively. Fatty acid analysis showed that striped bream eggs contain saturated fatty acid of 36.88±0.025%, monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) of 32.61±0.240% and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) of 30.42±0.175%. Moreover, contents Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) of 4.60±0.036%, Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) of 16.66±0.077%, Arachidonic acid (AA) of 1.12±0.033% , w-3 of 23.06% and w-6 of 7.36% were also determined.
