Abstract: The use of plant extracts from aromatic plants in the fight against the alterative factors in foodstuffs is very much in vogue today. This study aims to prove the effectiveness of four (04) plants in the control of moulds isolated from smoked fish. The extraction yield, the majority composition of the oils and their effectiveness against moulds isolated from smoked fish was determined. From the results obtained, it appears that the essential oils of Syzygium aromaticum have the highest extraction yield. The determination of the composition of the essential oils showed that they are rich in compounds that suggest strong antifungal activity. The use of essential oils against mould isolated from smoked fish has shown that all oils are effective but that those from Pimenta racemosa and Syzygium aromaticum are the most effective.
