- Total antioxidant capacity (TAC) was measured in the seminal plasma of 13 fish species using a commercial assay kit. TAC values are quite variable among the 13 species studied, from 0.008mM of Trolox for rainbow trout to 1.909mM of Trolox for Eurasian perch. Two species of percid fish were distinguished by high values of TAC. Most of TAC was attributed to fraction≤2kDa which suggests that TAC in seminal plasma is related to low molecular weight antioxidants. The assay kit was not useful for measurements of TAC in fish blood plasma.
