Effect of super chilling on the proximate composition of Indian Mackerel (Rastrelliger kanagurta) stored in solar operated refrigerated fish vending unit

Gayatri Pandey, CV Raju, and Jag Pal

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of super chilling on the proximate composition of commercially important fish, Indian mackerel (Rastrelliger kanagurta). The fish was procured from Mangalore landing centre in very fresh condition, washed in chilled water and then stored in solar operated indigenously developed refrigerated fish vending unit. The total storage period was of 12 days and the sampling was done in every alternate day during storage period. The crude protein, moisture, crude fat and ash content reached upto 15.31%, 71.21%, 3.45%, and 1.11% respectively on the 12th day. The results showed a significant decrease (p<0.05) during the storage period.
