What the research is about
The aim of this study was to develop the QIM scheme for raw bogue from Adriatic Sea and evaluate it in a shelf-life study. In order to gain further information about the environmental effect (farming cages) on postmortem changes of bogue differences in sensory properties, proximate composition, physical, and bio-chemical quality parameters between samples aggregated around fish farming cages and samples from the area not influenced by the farming cages were compared.
The scheme developed in this study was found to be a reliable, precise, and rapid tool for measuring sensory changes and estimate remaining shelf life for ice stored bogues regardless of the significant effect of catching ground (in this case area near farming cages) on quality and postmortem sen-sory attributes, as well as pH values, TBA values, and dielectric properties of the fish.
Assurant Innovations take
Torrymeter was used to comapre the sensory results of odor, flavor and texture as the fish under test was aged in ice.
