Abstract

The astaxanthin pigment was extracted from Procambarus clarkii and Solenocera agassizii wastes using a soilbean oil process. Extracts containing 22 mg of astaxanthin/100 g of oil and 104.2 mg of astaxanthin/100 g of oil were prepared fron crawfish (P.clarkii) and red shrimp (S.agassizii) wastes respectively.The 104.2 mg of astaxanthin/100 g of oil highest than those reported for other crustacean wastes. Therefore, red shrimp wastes has good potencial as a natural pigment source, notably in aquatic diets for salmonid fishes, laying hens and the yolk of their eggs.
