Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is one of the most popular farmed fishes in the world, has excellent adaptation and reproduction in lentic environments and possess highquality fillet. Apart from the clean and edible parts of the fish, there is a substantial amount of fish waste. Often this waste remainder is dumped at rivers, causing an imbalance of nutrients followed by pollution. Tilapia carcasses and viscera have a high protein value being used to make food for aquatic organisms. The use of fish waste decreases the risk of environmental pollution and generates economic revenues. Researchers have shown that waste material can be used to recover useful compounds including proteins that have antimicrobial activities. This book discusses the presence of trypsin inhibitor in tilapia liver, stomach and intestine. (Imprint: Nova)
