In the current study, ATGL, LPL, and HSL activities of shrimp at both 3 and 30 were more than those at 17, indicating that lipid mobilization has increased, because ATGL (TAG hydrolysis), LPL, and HSL are crucial enzymes in lipid mobilization by performing the first step in hydrolyzing TAG to generate diacylglycerol and free fatty acid (Osuga et al.
