Membrane Reef
They have more unsaturated fatty acids in phospholipids?

ice fish are in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica, and butterfly fish found in tropical ecosystems of coral reefs. If you could examine the cell walls of ice fish and butterfly fish, which would have more unsaturated fatty acids in phospholipids? Why? PLEASE HELP!

The fold on the tail of unsaturated fatty acids assistance with the characteristic semi-fluid cell membrane. The more unsaturated fatty acids in the membrane is more fluid and the freezing point of the membrane will be reduced. fat (saturated why are solid at room temperature, while unsaturated ones are liquids). This means that the fish lives in cold water should be the cell membrane with more unsaturated fatty acids to your cells do not freeze.
