1. The fatty acid profiles of all of the acyl-lipid classes of 1- and 10-day-old European oyster Ostrea edulis (L.) larvae were studied in detail by capillary gas-liquid chromatography. 2. No significant changes in the fatty acids were detected between the different larval stages. 3. Total lipid fatty acids showed a higher degree of unsaturation than previously reported. This may be a consequence of the extraction of lipids from the living tissues without sample storage. 4. One-third of the… CONTINUE READING
