Characteristics of Paracaudina australis Fatty Acid from Karimun, Riau Islands
P. australis is one of the marine biota that has not been used optimally, especially in Karimun Regency, Riau Islands. One effort that can be done to increase the added value of Berunok is to conduct research on the characteristics of the proximate content of P. australis. The purpose of this study is to determine the comparison of the proximate composition of two species of P. australis from different sampling locations. Sampling was carried out at Pelawan Beach and Tanjung Melolo from Karimun regency waters, the Riau archipelago. Calculation results of Pelawan Beach Fatty Acid content, Laurat 0.271%, Mirristate 10.503%, Palmitate 16.336%, Stearate 3.985%, Oleat 5.059 Linoleate 30.619% Linolenic 14.522% While at Tanjung Melolo Laurat 0%, Miristat 8,353%, Palmitate 21,197%, Stearate 4.493%, Oleate 6.128%, Linoleate 31.989%, Linolenat 11.840%.
