Abstract
    In extant marine teleosts that spawn pelagic eggs, a large pool of free amino acids (FAA) is generated during oocyte hydration. At the same time yolk proteins (mainly a similar to 105 kDa protein) are cleaved. Intriguingly, the profile of FAA is remarkably similar regardless of the taxonomic position of the fish species, implying that the hydrolysed protein fractions are evolutionary conserved. Tryptic digests of the similar to 105 kDa protein (haddock) reveals that it belongs to the N-terminal end of pre-cleaved vitellogenin
