High content of polyunsaturated fatty acid in fish oil makes it very susceptible to oxidation, which prevent fish oil from successful application to food processing or functional foods. To resolve this problem, oxidation stability model of fish oil was developed using the following differential equation : $dp/dt=k{\cdot}p(t){\cdot}[P_{max}\;-\;p(t)]$. This differential equation can be intergrated using analytical techniques to give : $p(t)=P_{max}/[1\;+\;[(P_{max}/P_{(0)})\;-\;-1]{\cdot}EXP(-K_p{\cdot}t)]$. At 50, 60, 70 and $80^{\circ}C,\;K_p$ were 0.00535, 0.01345, 0.02516 and 0.04675, respectively. The proposed model was well agreed with the measured data except for some minor deviations. In addition, $K_p$ was expressed as a function of temperature : $K_p=(1/P_{max})EXP\;[1\;-\;(8148/T)+20.1]$. Where T is absolute temperature($^{o}K$).
