- ... Krill, (Euphausia pacifica) contains a high protein content (>15.4%) and an estimated biological value higher than many animal protein sources. Thus it is considered to be an important source of high-quality protein. However, commercial processing of krill is limited due to problems such as presence of hydrolytic enzymes (proteases, carboxypeptidases, nucleases, and phospholipases), and its small ...
