These electronic instruments are particularly useful for measuring the muscle fat content of oily fish and therefore these instruments can facilitate routine collection of fish condition data at the individual level. , 2002; Davidson & Marshall, 2010) and tuna Thuna thynnus (Goñi & Arrizabalaga, 2010). Compared with the other indicators, which require sacrifice of the organism, the fatmeter is a non-destructive method that is easy and rapid to use. 10 Relationship between fat and dry matter content in the Black Sea sprat.

It is also worth noting that total lipid content is often well correlated with better measures of energy reserves such as EFAs, TAGs, and phospholipids, which are the dominant lipid classes, and energy density. TAGs are the major energy storage form in fish and have important ecophysiological relevance as indicators of growth potential and survival (Sogard & Olla, 2000). EFAs are nutritionally critical lipid components, particularly EPA and DHA, which are most commonly identified as limiting in fish (Tocher, 2003).

Together with their structural significance as the membrane’s “skeleton,” phospholipids are involved in the metabolic activity of cells, regulating their viscosity and permeability and playing a role in the transport of substances across the bilayer. Phospholipid structure is very sensitive to ­different factors, particularly temperature. 5% of wet mass. The main phospholipid fractions include phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and phosphatidylserine. These constitute up to 70% of total phospholipids.
