ABSTRACT

Pacific cod, Gadus macorcephalus, were held in the round in ice and in CO2 modified refrigerated seawater (MRSW), and examined for chemical changes as well as changes in palatability of steamed portions of blocks of fiiets. Sensory evaluation of raw and cooked flesh indicated that the quality of cod was acceptable to 6 days in ice and to 9 days in MRSW. Absorption of salt may present a problem for holding cod in MRSW. Trimethylamine and total volatile acid content was significantly correlated with flavor scores.
