The essential nutrients: Lipids and fatty acids
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this section is to acquaint the reader about common fatty acids, their nomenclature and formulas, and differentiate between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids; to know how environmental factors (temperature, salinity, diet) influence the fatty acid composition of fish; the mechanisms of fatty acid biosynthesis and oxidation, and factors that favor fatty acid biosynthesis and oxidation; the effects of lipid peroxidation and the function of antioxidants; and to understand the importance of fatty acid profiles in fish nutrition, and differences in the essential fatty acid requirements of warmwater and coldwater fishes.
