Because there is a wide range of carbohydrates found in naturally occurring food (Kristensen 1972), it seems appropriate that prawns would exhibit a diverse carbohydrase
profile to exploit the range of dietary carbohydrates (Wigglesworth & Griffith 1994).

2014) found that supplementation of a corn-soy diet with [beta]-mannanase and a carbohydrase
cocktail, separately and intermittently, improved body weight and feed efficiency in broilers.
Energy utilization and growth performance of broilers receiving diets supplemented with enzymes containing carbohydrase

These are primarily involved in conversion of carbohydrate to carbohydrase

, protease, and phytase have an additive beneficial effect in nutritionally marginal diets for broiler chicks.
Generally, while carbohydrase
enzymes supplementation is common as commercial practice in swine and poultry industries, the use of these enzymes has not received much attention in aquaculture.
The effect of dietary phosphorus and calcium level, phytase supplementation, and ileal infusion of pectin on the chemical composition and carbohydrase

Fungal production systems such as this are likely to have low carbohydrase
