Abstract

COMPARISON OF MEAT YIELD, FLESH COLOUR, FATTY ACID, AND MINERAL COMPOSITION OF WILD AND CULTURED MEDITERRANEAN AMBERJACK (Seriola dumerili, Risso 1810)

Meat yield, flesh colour, proximate and mineral compositions, and fatty acid profile of cap-tured and wild greater amberjack were investigated. Meat yield and flesh colour of wild and cultured greater amberjack were similar. However, their proximate compositions were differ-ent. Most of the fatty acid composition of the wild and farmed fish were significantly different (P0.05) from each other, except C14:0; C20:2 n-6; C20:3 n-6; C20:5 n-3; C22:5 n-3. The levels of linoleic acid and erucic acid were the key fatty acids discriminating cultured fish from the wild counterpart. The ratio of total n-3:n-6 fatty acid was 5.5 and 4.15 in the wild and farmed fish respectively. Macro elements level was much greater in the wild fish compare to cultred fish with the exception of calcium. Among the trace elements, iron was the foremost trace element followed by zinc, copper, barium, lead, manganese, and cadmium.
