Mud crabs (Scylla serrata) cannot synthesize essential fatty acids, so it needs a supply of Omega-3 fatty acids. One source of unsaturated fatty acids are Omega-3 in Crude Fish Oil (CFO). CFO is a source of essential fatty acids which contains EPA and DHA. The aim is to determine the provision of CFO on trash fish feed to the content of Omega-3 in mud crab. The method is experimentally using completely randomized design with five treatments and four replications. The number of CFO doses that added in a trash fish feed are P0 (0%), P1 (2%), P2 (4%), P3 (6%) and P4 (8%). Analysis of the content of EPA and DHA in mud crab performed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry equipped with a column of silica and helium as a gas booster. The results showed that the addition of CFO on the feed provides a significantly different effect (P <0.05) of Omega-3 (EPA and DHA). Content of EPA and DHA in mud crab has shown the increased results when giving the smallest dose, 2% of CFO at P1 treatment, but when the dose was increased again to 4%, 6% and even 8% the results did not show any significant difference.
