Abstract
For the first time we investigated the total carotenoid content (TCC) in the gonads predator Rapana venosa depending on the age of the individuals and TCC victim's body. The data obtained show a direct link between the increase amounts of carotenoids in the gonads R. venosa with age. Strengthening the color intensity of the gonads is also associated with an increase in carotenoid content. The content of carotenoids in the Rapana gonade also dependent from TCC of its food items tissue.
