Abstract

Some of the best known compounds of organic chemistry that participate in the regulation of diverse regulation mechanisms of cells, and consequently the whole body, are the fatty acids. Thus, they have important role in several areas. They serve as signaling molecules, participate in the construction of membranes and they are a source of energy and fuel for the organism. Due to its versatility we can find different divisions of fatty acids. For example, division based on different saturation and unsaturation (amount of double bond), the number of carbon atoms, essentiality and non-essentiality, and the level of attachment to other biochemical molecules (free or bound fatty acids), etc. We can find fatty acids in fish, where they participate in the maturation of the gonads, thermal adaptation, immune system and saving energy. Because of their possibilities of production of the essential fatty acids, members of the order Anguilliformes (True eels), are of high importance. Their representatives are European eel and Mediterranean moray. The aim of this work is to compare the fatty acid composition of these two species.
