Activity of aldolase in tissues of Mytilus galloprovincialis with different shell color has been studied. Mussels' shell color was measured by photographing and computer processing of digital pictures using Adobe Photoshop CS-3. Four color groups were identified: black, intermediate, dark and light brown. It has been shown that in gill of intermediate and dark brown mussels aldolase activity was lower than in black and light brown. This correlation is described by parabolic function. Aldolase activity in podium and hepatopancreas of differently colored mussels was similar. Reasons of this difference are discussed.
