1. Hybrid striped bass (HB) were heavier and fatter than striped bass (SB) at harvest. 2. Total lipid, triacylglycerol and phospholipid fractions from muscle tissue of HB were characterized as having significantly larger quantities of polyunsaturated fatty acids than SB, while SB contained larger quantities of omega 3 fatty acids (specifically 22:6 and 20:5) than HB. 3. HB muscle tissue contained 14.99 and 11.42 micrograms/g dry weight of alpha- and gamma-tocopherol, respectively, while SB… CONTINUE READING
