Peptides derived from fish proteins have shown the ability of exerting potent antioxidative activities in different oxidative systems (Rajapakse et al., 2005).
These peptides are capable of binding to cell surface receptors on osteoclastsand involved mainly in calcium metabolism by decreasing the number of osteoclasts.
Collagen is generally extracted with acid treatment and solubilized without altering its triple helix.
Clinical investigations suggest that ingestion of collagen/gelatin hydrolysates reduces pain in patients suffering from osteoarthritis and hydrolyzed collagen have been involved in cartilage matrix synthesis (Moskowitz, 2000).
In order to incorporate fish bone into calcium-fortified food it should be converted into an edible form by softening its structure.
Fish bone material becomes an important source for biomedical applications due to the presence of hydroxyapatite as the major inorganic constituent.
Even though marine fish derived enzymes do not have direct applications in the field of functional foods or nutraceuticals they can be utilized to produce bioactive components in large scale.
