Jurkowski M.K., 1976. The fatty acids composition in egg lipids of pike, Esox lucius L. from the Puck Bay and lakes near Lipusz. Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 6 (2): 9-15.
The composition of fatty acids was determined in eggs of pike inhabiting some inland lakes and the Baltic′s Puck Bay. The acid percentage composition was found to vary in each lipid series. Additionally, considerable differences were revealed in quantities of the C-24 : 0; C-24 : 1, and C-24 : 2 acids present. In brackish water pike eggs, no amount of the following acids was detected: C-20 : 1, C-23 : 1, and C-23 : 2 in phospholipids, C-18 : 0 in cholesterol esters, C-16 : 4 in triglycerides. The acids listed above are present, although in very small quantities, in eggs of pike from inland waters.
