    Naturally occurring long-chain omega-3 PUFA such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5 omega-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6 omega-3) exert multiple effects on health, which are related to the intake of these lipids in the diet and correlate with the levels of omega-3 PUFA in the body. These levels are reflected by the omega-3 PUFA index, i.e. the EPA and DHA content as % of all fatty acids in red blood cells. The aim of this study was to evaluate omega-3 index in the Czech Republic, using blood samples collected from the capital city (n = 476) and the rural region (n = 388). The mean omega-3 index was 3.56 mol % with a maximal value of 8.10% and a minimal value of 1.12%. There was no difference in the index value between rural and urban / industrial regions, but this value was higher in subjects who reported eating fish or omega-3 PUFA supplements. In conclusion, the results indicated suboptimal values of the omega-3 index in the Czech population independent of the sampling region.
