Fatty acid composition of some South African fresh-water fish

, : Fatty acid composition of some South African fresh-water fish. South African Medical Journal 76(7): 368-370

The fatty acid composition of the flesh of 18 different species of fresh-water fish found in South Africa was analysed by capillary gas chromatography. In general all the fish studied had low percentages of eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid and fairly high percentages of arachidonic acid and linoleic acid when compared with marine fish. The saturated fats constituted 33% of total fatty acids and the monoenes were on average 35%.

From the aerial parts of Ballota nigra subsp. foetida a new prefuranic labdane diterpene, preleosibrinin, has been isolated. Its structure was established by spectroscopic means and by correlation with the previously known diterpenoid leosibirin.
