Superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity in the skin of fish was observed to be higher in the dark than in the light parts. SOD activities in both parts were confirmed by visualisation of SOD activity on polyacrylamide gels. We suggest that the distribution of higher SOD in the dark parts of the skin might be related to melanization and to regulate of reactive oxygen species.
