Occurrence of Listeria monocytogenes and biochemical composition in some Seafood, Kakdwip coast, West Bengal, India


Author(s): Shuvra Roy

Abstract: Samples of marine fishes (Oil Sardine, Silver bellies, Indian mackerel, Tuna and Ribbonfishes) were collected from Kakdwip Coast of India to examine the occurrence of Listeria monocytogenes and to estimate the proximate composition (moisture, protein, carbohydrate and fat). The results of the present study revealed that L. monocytogenes were found enumerated, which varied between 0.012×102 and 0.15× 102 CFU/ml in Indian Mackerel and Oil Sardine respectively. The average moisture content was ranged from 64.79 to 74.33%. The protein content was noticed between 14.53 to 16.87% while the fat content (3.75 to 6.54 %,) and the Carbohydrate were varied widely from 3.5 to 9.58%. The details of the nutritive value of the fishes were presented.
