An Investigation on Microbial Screening on Salt Dried Marine Fishes

A.R. Logesh, M. Pravinkumar, S.M. Raffi and M. Kalaiselvam

Quality assurance of processed seafood is of utmost concern that has greater implications in health point of view. The conventional method employed in salt drying of fishes that are intended for human consumption are facing serious health hazards due to improper and unscientific methods. In this backdrop, an investigation has been carried out so as to analyze the quantum of microbial load in salt dried fishes processed by conventional methods. Samples of salt dried fishes were collected from drying yards in and around Parangipettai coastal village of Cuddalore district and were screened for microbial analyses. Presence of different group of faecal coliforms and Vibrio spp. is an alarming situation that warrants the need for incorporating hygienic and scientific ways of salt drying.
