Abstract Great amount of marine fish species have been identified with potential nutraceutical and medicinal values. Consequently, a number of bioactive compounds have been identified including fish muscle proteins, peptides, collagen and gelatin, fish oil, fish bone. Bioactive peptides derived from various fish muscle proteins have shown various biological activities including antihypertensive, antibacterial, anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activities, and hence they may be a potential material for biomedical and food industries. Further, they are commonly used in medical and pharmaceutical industries as carrier molecules for drugs, proteins, and genes. Hence, fish muscle protein-derived peptides are valuable natural resources that can be potential material for biomedical, nutraceutical, and food industries. Copyright Â© 2012 Elsevier Inc.
