Resumen : An association between dietary fish oil and decreased yolk weight and reduced sensory quality of eggs has been reported when eggs are enriched with n-3 FA from fish oil. Seaweeds are an important source of compounds that seem to increase egg weight when included in the laying hen diet. The objectives of this study were to determine the influence of the dietary seaweeds Macrocystis pyrifera, Sargassum sinicola and Enteromorpha sp. on the physical quality, lipid composition and consumer acceptability of n-3 FA enriched eggs. One-hundred and forty-four 35-weekold Leghorn hens were randomly distributed in tour treatments that consisted of the inclusion of 2% of sardine oil (SO) and 10% of each marine alga (MA) in laying hens' diets; a control diet (C) was also prepared. The study lasted 8 weeks and egg physical quality, egg lipids and sensory attributes were evaluated. The results showed that incorporation of 10% M. pyrifera in the diets is an effective way of increasing the n-3 FA content, the albumen height and yola color, but not the egg weight, when these are enriched with n-3 FA from fish oil. The egg flavor was also not affected.
