“Essential fatty acids” in aquatic ecosystems: a crucial link between diet and human health and evolution1

Abstract

Fatty acids (FA) are inextricably linked with key physiological and biochemical processes and are thus integral to proper ecosystem functioning. FA not biosynthesized effectively by animals are termed essential fatty acids (EFA). These EFA are important “drivers” of ecosystem health/stability and are therefore highly conserved in aquatic food chains… (More)
