Abstract

In this study, the fatty acids composition and the related health lipid indices (IA, atherogenic and IT thrombogenic)
of Orange fin pony fish (Leiognathusbindus) and sulphur goatfishes (Upeneussulphureus) were studied in fall and spring in Mahshahr port in south of Iran. Fatty acids were analyzed by Gas Chromatograph (FID). The fatty acid composition of Leiognathusbindus and Upeneussulphureus showed a relevant proportion (26.95% and 25.34% respectively) of poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with a prevalence of the n – 3 series. The IA and IT indices resulted comparable in spring and fall. The ratio of W3/W6 was different in fall and spring for both species.
