Previous studies have shown that an (n-3) PUFA-rich diet can improve resistance to osmotic shock in aquatic animals because (n-3) HUFAs, especially DHA, are incorporated primarily in cell membranes and can increase membrane permeability, and hence their fluidity (Martins et al.
However, there is wide variation among aquatic animals in their ability to synthesize HUFAs (Sargent et al.

However, Voss and co-workers (1991) proposed that [DELTA] 4 desaturase may not be participating in the HUFA biosynthetic pathway.

discus hannai requires n-3 and n-6 HUFA
as EFA, and the n-3HUFA
requirement was about 1% in a diet containing 5% lipid.
The authors assumed that the lack of a growth response to the different lipid sources and different levels of HUFA
may be due to insufficient duration (75 days) of the experiment to achieve an essential fatty acid deficiency.
