Analyses of Fatty Acid (FA) Composition in marine fishes promote understanding of potential relationship between fish and health of human nutrition. This study was carried out to determine the fatty acid composition in muscle tissue of four edible fishes namely Nematalosa nasus, Alleger para, Atropus atropus and Parastromateus niger which were collected from Parangipettai coast, Tamil Nadu. The compositions of fatty acids showed that total saturated fatty acids (SFA; 31.72-47.46%) were highest, followed by the Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA; 27.37-45.23%), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA; 16.14-27.51%). All samples showed a significant amount of omega-3 PUFA (5.77-13.13%) compared to omega-6 PUFA (4.94-6.12%).
