Abstract
    In order to clarify the effects of salmon pituitary homogenate (SPH) injection on lipid transportation to eggs, changes in lipid contents and fatty acid compositions of the muscle, liver and ovary of SPH injected Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica, were examined. Fatty acid composition of ovulated eggs in artificially maturing eels was compared to that of some naturally maturing teleosts. Percentage of n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) in relation to total fatty acids in liver and ovary decreased during artificial maturation and n-3 HUFA of ovulated eggs of eels was remarkably lower than that of other fish.
