  title={Production and Characterization of Oil from Fishes},
  author={Musa Abdulkadir and G. I. Abubakar and Abubakar Mohammed},
Production and characterization of fish oil were carried out using soxhlet apparatus and n-Hexane as the solvent for extraction. The extraction was carried out at the boiling point of the solvent. Five different species of fishes were used for the experiment. From the result of the extraction, it was observed that the fish A (Mormyrups deliciousus) and fish E (shawa) have a good percentage of oil content of about 30.22% and 24.02% of its dry mass, respectively, while cat fish, tilapia and mud… CONTINUE READING
