    Abstract

    The amino acid and fatty acid contents of two gastropods viz. Tonna dolium and Phalium glaucum were determined from the Gulf of Mannar. The presences of 7 fatty acids were recorded in both species. The total fatty acid contents in T. dolium and P. glaucum were 7.63% and 6.34 % respectively. PUFA were the dominant fatty acid group, followed by SFA in both the species. For T. dolium, the most abundant fatty acids were, in decreasing order, C18:2ω-6, C18:0, C18:3ω-3, and C16:0 whereas in P. glaucum it were C18:2ω6, C18:3ω-3, C18:0 and C16:0. The total amino acid (TAA) contents of T. dolium and P. glaucum were 19.07% and 17.3% respectively. Among the TAA contents, the percentage of EAA and NEAA in T. dolium and P. glaucum were found to be 9.96%, 8.05% and 9.11%, 9.25% respectively. Methionine (1.40%), phenylalanine (1.31%), isoleucine (1.20%) and leucine (1.20%) in T. dolium and isoleucine (1.24%), methionine (1.12%) and phenylalanine (1.06%) in P. glaucum were determined as the most abundant EAA whereas alanine (1.40%) arginine (1.34%) and glycine (1.18%) in T. dolium and alanine (1.15%) arginine (1.15%) and glutamic acid (1.14%) in P. glaucum contributed as major non-essential amino acids.
