Samples of fertilized dentex, Dentex dentex, eggs and larvae fed enriched rotifers and Artemia according to standard hatchery procedures were analysed for free, total amino acid and fatty acid contents. Egg free amino acids (53 nmol ind-1) and total lipids (13.5 (μg ind-1) levels were considerably reduced in the newly hatched larvae (6.0 nmol and 5.7 (μg ind-1 respectively) while the amount of ω-3 PUFA (Polyunsaturated fatty acid) and 20:4ω-6 remained unchanged suggesting their possible role as… CONTINUE READING
