In this study, the hydrolysis conditions for the production of anti-inflammatory peptides from meat and roe hydrolysates of sandfish (Arctoscopus japonicus) were determined by measuring the nitric oxide (NO) scavenging enzymatic activity, experimental pH, temperature, enzyme concentration, and hydrolysis time. The optimal conditions determined when using meat hydrolysate were a pH value of 5.0, at a temperature of $30^{\circ}C$, 1% enzyme concentration, and 4 h hydrolysis time. The optimal conditions when using roe hydrolysate were a pH of 5.0, a temperature of $70^{\circ}C$, enzyme concentration of 3%, and hydrolysis time of 3 h. The NO scavenging activities of meat and roe hydrolysate were determined to be 18.94 and 19.81%, respectively. In summary, this study determined the optimum enzymatic hydrolysis conditions for the production of anti-inflammatory peptides from sandfish.
