After publication of this manuscript , we noted that one of the monounsaturated fatty acid isomers had been mislabelled in the results, and in Figure 2A and Table 2.
In the Results and discussion, the sentence, “Concerning plasma MUFA levels, long-chain MUFA C20:1 (n-9 and n-7) and C22:1 (n-11 and n-9) peaked at 2 hr post-ingestion (Figure 2a and b)” should read, “Concerning plasma MUFA levels, long-chain MUFA C20:1 (n-11, n-9 and n-7) and C22:1 (n-11 and n-9) peaked at 2 hr post-ingestion (Figure 2a and b)”.
Figure 1. Changes in plasma levels of MUFA with aliphatic tails >18C atoms. Plasma levels (% of total plasma fatty acids) of C20:1 (n-11, n-9 and n-7) (A), C22:1 C20:1 n-9 (B), and total long-chain MUFA (C20:1 and C22:1 isomers combined) (C) are shown. The data were collected before and after the ingestion of a single saury meal. Values represent the mean ± SE, n = 5. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001 as compared to pre-ingestion values (time 0).

We apologise for this error, which was due to a misreading of the gas chromatography reading.
