Omega-3, Omega-6, Omega-9 fatty acids and Squalene are an active component of fish oil that are
beneficial to the human health. Squalene is countained in shark liver oil (Centrophorus sp.). The aim of
this research was to determine the quality and characterization of fish oil from of household production
at Pelabuhan Ratu. The analysis is the fatty acid profile, primer and sekunder oxidation and determine
the content of compounds squalene contained in the shark liver oil. The fatty acid profile showed that the
dominant fatty acid is oleic aced (28.22%). EPA and DHA of shark liver oil are 1.54% and 4.78% respectively.
The test results of parameter value of primary and secondary showed shark liver oil has a high oxidation
value of PV (17.73 mEg/kg), p-AV (29.32 mEg/kg), TOTOX (64.78 mEg/kg) and FFA (4.65%). The value
of the density and viscosity of the shark liver oil of 0.91 g/cm3 and 38.18 cPs. Clarity shark liver oil at a
wavelength of 450 nm is 84.98%. GC-MS showed that squalene peak appears at the retention time of 23.357
and 23.285 minutes with a total area of 12.49% and 22.14% for crude and pure (reffine) shark liver oil and
its molecular weight was 410.391 g/mol.
