Biochemical Variability

Ravindranath, M H (1981) Biochemical Variability. CMFRI Special Publication (7). pp. 3-4.



A perusal of previous literature on the biochemistry of crustaceans would reveal a remarkable intra-specific variability in biochemical composition of tissues. A critical assessment of factors responsible for biochemical variability of tissues of individual species is necessary, in order to understand the physiological role of the biochemical components in question. Halberg (1973) has broadly classified the factors influencing individual biochemical variability as inter-individual and intraindividual. The inter-individual factors would include sex, size, moulting, nutritional and reproductive status in addition to pathological and environmental conditions. The intraindividual factors which may bring about biochemical variability include techniques and time of day.
