Abstract 1. 1.|The developmental, physiochemical, molecular weight and polymorphism properties of the 14 soluble esterases in the tissues of rainbow trout have been studied. 2. 2.|Nine arylesterases, three carboxylesterases and two cholinesterases were resolved, with three distinct groups of arylesterases being differentiated. Consequently, it would appear that at least 5 structural genes are involved in the synthesis of these esterase forms. 3. 3.|The detection of polymorphism in one of the carboxylesterases and its distribution in the fish population, lends further support to the hypothesis that salmonid fish are tetraploid. 4. 4.|Ontogenic studies indicate that there is a marked increase in esterase activity and heterogeneity, at the time of hatching.
