Abstract

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION, FATTY ACIDS PROFILE AND CHOLESTEROL CONTENT OF COMMERCIALIZED MARINE FISHES CAPTURED IN NORTHEASTERN ATLANTIC

Information available on the chemical composition and nutritional value of commercialized marine fish is very limited. The aim of this study was to investigate major nutrients of raw fish muscle and liver. Protein, moisture ash and lipid content were estimated for 14 commercialized species captured in Northeastern Atlantic. Proximate compositions were found to be varied among the studied species. Cluster analysis revealed two major groups based on proximate composition. Pontinus kuhlii and Trachurus picturatus formed one group, while the second group was formed by ten other species. Protein content was high in all species, varying between 18.51% in Phycis phycis and 32.69 % in Diplodus sargus. Fat content, on the other hand, was low and fish could be considered lean (lipid content
