Abstract

ABSTRACT

The shelf life of sharp snout sea bream (Diplodus puntazzo) stored in refrigerator was investigated by measurement of sensory, chemical (total volatile basic nitrogen [TVB-N], trimethylamine [TMA-N], thiobarbituric acid [TBA] and pH) and microbiological (total viable and psychrophilic count) analysis. According to the sensory and chemical analysis results evaluated, the shelf life of sharp snout sea bream was detected as 10 days for storage at refrigeration temperatures, respectively, as compared with 8 days of sensory analysis results.

PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS

Sharp snout sea bream is one of the important fish species in the aquaculture sector in Turkey. In recent years, the aquaculture sector was mainly interested with the fish species Dicentrarchus labrax and Sparus aurata, but nowadays, a new valuable fish aquaculture is possible in this sector. Diplodus puntazzo, Dentex dentex and Sciena umbra are some of them. The importance of this study came from being the first in the literature that determines the shelf life for these species.
