Abstract: This study aimed at assessing the effects of two smoking and storage methods on the sensory and bromatological qualities of I. africana. The sensory analysis revealed a total mean score of 4.40 ± 1.37 for improved smoked fish against 7.33 ± 0.74 for the traditional smoked ones. Proteins, lipids, and ashes contents were 55.10 ± 0.70%, 13.43 ± 0.08% and 11.14 ± 0.98% respectively for the improved smoking method against 37.53 ± 0.94%, 12.62 ± 0.50% and 10.77 ± 0.06% for the traditional method. Bromatological parameters progressively reduced due to alteration and humidity. Sensory and bromatological qualities varied significantly (p <0.05) with smocking and storage method. This study showed that improved smoking and cooled storage have positive influence on the acceptability, shelf life and nutrition of smoked fish
