AbstractCorophium volutator from Minas Basin, Bay of Fundy, had about 1.2% lipid made up of 55.3% phospholipid, 31.4% triglyceride, and minor amounts of other lipids. This lipid composition is similar to that found in other estuarine and shoreline crustaceans not utilizing storage lipids during part of their annual cycle. The fatty acids of the phospholipids and triglycerides were those characteristic of marine lipids. Some interrelationships among monoethylenic fatty acids and among longer-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids of these 2 lipid classes are discussed. The more interesting aspects of these fatty acids were, however, found in a minor lipid class, thought to be sterol ester, for which comparative data are lacking.
