Studies on the digestion of krill by Notothenia rossii marmorata, Notothenia neglecta, Champsocephalus gunnari and Chaenocephalus aceratus showed that these Antarctic fish species are well equipped to feed on krill, as indicated by their high levels of chitinase and protease activity. Very high chitinolytic activities were determined in the stomach of the fish species. However, activities that were measured in intestine samples can be substantial, as well. Very strong protease activities were… CONTINUE READING
