Abstract

1. 1. Digestive processes of 250-day-old white sturgeon were analyzed for enzyme concentrations, protein content and pH. 2. 2. Digestion is initiated in the gastric region by secretion of acid and pepsin; however, diversity of digestive enzymes is highest in the post-gastric alimentary canal with the greatest proteolytic activity in the spiral valve. 3. 3. Domination of the enzyme complement by proteases is consistent with this species carnivorous feeding habits.
