Abstract:

Chitin and chitosan is an important natural resources and are estimated that almost as much as cellulose. Chitin is the fiber in shellfish such as crab, cobster, shrimp, and prawn. The shrimp industry generates a huge amount of shell waste per processing which usually cause environmental nuisance. This waste can be utilized as an economic source of chitin and its derivative chitosan. The chitin and chitosan are considered versatile and promising biomaterial. Keeping the significance of chitin and chitosan, the present investigation has taken up to evaluate the yield percentage and quality parameters between the fresh water prawn Macrobrachium rosenberfii and tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon. Compare with the between two species M. rosebergii was better chitosan producer.


Keywords: Chitin,Chitosan, M.rosenberii and P.monodon.
