Chitinase, one of the major metabolite produced by many organisms for the degradation of chitin. Chitinases also play a role in the utilization of waste from crustacean and other insects resulting in the hydrolysis of chitin to its monomer N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. The production of Chitinase can be enhanced by changing the constituents in the medium. In present study chitin production from Metarhizium anisopliae isolated from the dead insect showed production with different concentration of chitin in submerged media and solid state fermentation using fish waste.
