Antioxidant activities of extracts from anglerfish (Lophiiu Zitulon) were evaluated. Each part of fresh (skin, flesh, stomach, and liver) or dried (skin and flesh) anglerfish was extracted by four different solvents (methanol, ethanol, acetone, and distilled water). Antioxidant activities of the extracts were determined by radical scavenging activity (RSA) and reducing power (RP). Relatively higher RSA and RP were found in methanol and water extract of fresh anglerfish liver. Antigenotoxic effect of the extracts, which was measured by Comet assay, was shown in most of the extracts except methanol, acetone and distilled water extracts of fresh stomach sample. These results indicated that antioxidant and antigenotoxic properties of extracts from angler fish were variable depending on parts, solvent, and/or physicochemical state. The appropriate extraction process could provide some valuable bioactive materials from anglerfish.
