The applications of Omega-3 fatty acids for human health are rapidly expanding, which necessitates exploring alternative sources of fish. Single cell oils are now widely accepted in the market place and there is a growing awareness of the health benefits of PUFAs, such as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), arachidonic acid (ARA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).The high prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide indicates the requirement for alternative sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Increasing demand for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) containing fish oils is putting pressure on fish species and numbers. The present study impacts on exploitation of two green algae Ulva reticulata, Caulerpa racemosa for their PUFA rich lipid profiling and screening for extraction methods of omega 3 fatty acids.
