    Abstract

    Sea urchin gonads of Stomopneustes variolaris is a delicacy in many parts of the world. The bright yellow orange colour of the gonad derives from the carotenoids pigments and an important organoleptic criterion for its quality. The major carotenoids naturally found in sea urchins are β-carotene, α-carotene, β-echinenone, zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin, lutein, astaxanthin, diatoxanthin, fucoxanthin and alloxanthin. In the present study sea urchin S.variolaris was collected along the Mandapam coast following the lunar phase during pre-monsoon period and they were subjected to the pigment analysis.
