This study was carried out to detect the percentage
content of fatty acids (FA) and some minerals (Ca, Mg, K, Na, Zn, Fe) of 40
mantis shrimp (Erugosquilla massavensis)
obtained from Northeastern Mediterranean Sea, Turkey. The protein and fat
contents were identified as 13.10±0.1% and 2.06±0.5, respectively. Distribution
of fatty acids in samples was SFA > MUFA > PUFA. The order of average
mineral concentrations found in samples was Mg>K>Na>Ca>Zn>Fe.
The results showed that the ratio of PUFA/SFA (0.29) of mantis shrimp was not
within the range reported as good (0.45) for human diets.
