The aims of this paper were to investigate the component fatty acids of some freshwater fish
species by comparing the levels of essential fatty acids present. The FAME were determined
by GC-MS and were identified using retention time locked methods and retention time
databases. The fatty acids profiles include minor amounts of odd-number, branched-chain,
and even-number fatty acids as well as saturated components, the MUFA and PUFA. The
major SFA were C14:0 and C16:0. The C18:1 was the prominent MUFA....
