Lipid quality deteroriation of bagridae catfish (Mystus nemurus) during storage.


Widjaja, Willy Pranata and Abdulamir, Ahmed Sahib and Abu Bakar, Fatimah and Saari, Nazamid and Ishak, Zamri and Abdul Hamid, Azizah (2009) Lipid quality deteroriation of bagridae catfish (Mystus nemurus) during storage. Research Journal of Biological Sciences, 4 (4). pp. 525-530. ISSN 1815-8846


Lipid damage indices of whole freshwater catfish (Mystus nemurus) stored at ambient (28±2°C), chilled (10±2°C) and iced (2±1°C) temperature for 24 h, 10 and 20 days, respectively, were studied. Lipid quality deterioration was evaluated by measuring free fatty acids, peroxide values, p-anisidine value, thiobarbituric acid and polyene index. The results showed that Mystus nemurus is a fatty fish species with 16.8-19% of fat content. The lipid hydrolysis and lipid oxidation that occurred after 12 h at ambient, 8 days at chilled and 16 days at iced storage increased significantly (p<0.05) to unacceptable levels with decreased polyene. This study demonstrates evidence-based research that typical storage conditions for Mystus nemurus is of practical significance to producers and consumers.
