Activity of lipoxygenase of the muscle tissue, skin, gills, fins, and gonads of Baltic herring (Clupea harengus L.) was analysed. Effect of gonad maturity (the fishing season) on the activity of this enzyme present in the muscle tissue was demonstrated. The substrate specificity of the enzyme was also determined.
