In the present study, seasonal variations in physico-chemical and microbiological quality of three dried fishes namely Chandana (Hilsa toli
), Ghol fish (Johnius caruta
) and Bombay duck (Harpadon nehereus
) were assessed in monsoon, winter and summer seasons. The physicochemical and microbiological quality of the experimental fishes were good in winter and summer season. However, a considerable quality deterioration was seen in the monsoon season in all the three experimental fishes. Among the experimental species, H. toli
had considerable variation in biochemical quality than that of H. nehereus
and J. caruta.
The higher relative humidity coupled with temperature in monsoon season were the critical factors in order to deteriorate physico-chemical and microbiological quality of dried fishes as revealed by correlation coefficients between humidity and quality parameters. The absence of the pathogenic strains of faecal coliform and salmonella in experimental fishes indicated that fishes were devoid of external contamination and found fit for human consumption.Pages: 16-25 | 464 Views 29 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
