Additional Information: Production of microbial chitinolytic enzymes has received much attention as one step in a bioconversion process to treat shellfish waste chitin and its application in the production of Nacetyl-D-glucosamine for use in food and pharmaceutical. Production of microbial chitinase is one of the primary economic in the utilization of shrimp processing solid waste. In recent years a considerable interest has been made in using shrimp processing waste for chitinase production by solid state fermentation. In India shrimp processing produce an average of 1.5 MT of shellfish solid annually and it create severe environmental pollution. Currently the shrimp waste is exclusively used for the extraction of chitin and chitosan. 187 acidophylic chitinolytic microbes was screened and made an attempt to produce chitinase by state fermentation (SSF) using shrimp waste as substrate by 3 different selected microorganisms. It was observed a maximum of 56.8 U/gIDS chitinase production by Oerskovia sp. on third day of incubation in a shrimp waste medium containing 60% moisture content and in an arbitrarily selected conditions of 32o C. Results of the present study indicates scope for the utilization of shrimp waste as a novel substrate for chitinase production by solid state fermentation.
