(1997) also detected alginate lyase, carboxymethylcellulase, laminarinase, agarase, carragenase in the hepatopancrease of abalone (Haliotis midae) and proposed that bacteria resident in the digestive system of H.

The chitinase and b-1, 3 glucanase (Laminarinase) are especially important fungus-controlling enzymes as a result of their ability to degrade the fungal cell wall components: chitin and b-1, 3 glucan (Henis & Chet, 1975).
From a dietary perspective, Norman and Jones (1990) used activity of laminarinase as an indicator of the ability of Liocarcinus puber (velvet swimming crab) to utilize the brown algae frequently found in its stomach.
Laminarinase activity was measured using laminarin as the substrate.
