This comprehensive book brings together experts from both the marine science and pharmacy disciplines to relay important aspects on the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical values of 175 species of bony and cartilaginous fishes as well as the uses of fish processing byproducts and wastes.Presented in an easy-to-read style, the volume provides precise identification of freshwater and marine fishes possessing pharmaceutical and nutraceutical compounds along with over 180 photographs. Aspects covered include biology, ecology, diagnostic features, and pharmaceutical and nutraceutical compounds along with their activities for each of the fish included. The book details the bioactive compounds, including fish muscle proteins, peptides, collagen and gelatin, fish oil, etc., from such species, as well as the bioactive peptides that are derived from various fish muscle proteins, which have various biological activities, including cardio protective, antihypertensive, anticancer, anti-diabetic, antibacterial, anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activities. Also discussed are the nutritional benefits of fish consumption, which are largely due to the presence of proteins, unsaturated essential fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins. The waste products obtained during fish processing are also a potential source of bioactive peptides that can be used as a source of nitrogen and amino acids, which have immunomodulatory, antibacterial, antitrombotic, and antihypertensive properties. This volume provides the information needed to tap into these vast pharmaceutical and nutraceutical benefits. Pharmaceuticals and Nutraceuticals from Fish and Fish Wastes will be of great use for students and researchers of disciplines such as pharmaceutical sciences, marine/fisheries sciences, marine microbiology, and marine biotechnology. It will also be a standard reference for libraries of colleges and universities and a guide for pharmaceutical companies involved in the development of new drugs from fishes and their wastes.
