  This study aimed to isolate and characterize spoilage causing organisms of Macrobrachium vollenhovenii as well as determine the shelf-life under ice storage. Fresh prawns and those exposed to two ice treatments: Direct Contact with Ice (DCI) and Without Contact with Ice (WCI) were evaluated for changes in a 10 day period. Aerobic plate and coliform counts range of 6-7 and 5-7 log10 cfu g-1 were observed for DCI, 6-7 and 3-6 log10 cfu g-1 were recorded for WCI and 3-5 and 4-6 log10 cfu g-1 for the fresh prawn. Both ice treatments significantly (p<0.05) curtailed the presence of Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli, Enterobacter aerogenes and Salmonella sp. after 6 days of storage. Ice treatments were unable to control the psychrophilic microbes Staphylococcus sp., Bacillus cereus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The population of these organisms particularly Pseudomonas aeruginosa increased significantly (p<0.05) with storage days. The shelf-life of freshwater prawn as determined by microbiological data is 7 days of ice storage in this study. Pseudomonas aeruginosa promotes spoilage of freshwater prawn in the absence of H2S and indole producing bacteria Proteus mirabilis and Escherichia coli.

  The importance of seaweeds cuts across various environmental, ecologic, socio-economic benefits and services as food for man, in the phycocolloids and expanding phycosupplement industries, as sink for excess carbon dioxide and excess nutrients; for sustainable energy generation and as fossil fuel substitutes. In view of this, seaweeds could become an important economic niche for Nigeria and other coastal African countries provided adequate research is undertaken in studying their diversity, biochemical compositions and potentials for culture in order to harness the numerous opportunities which can be derived.

  Changes in biochemical properties of freshwater prawn stored with two ice conditions, Direct Contact with Ice (DCI) and Without Direct Contact with Ice (WCI) for day 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 were investigated. Proximate composition defined in terms of moisture increased for the DCI as storage days increases (77.86% in day 0 to 84.62% in day 10) but relatively constant with treatments with WCI. Values of TVB-N (mg N/100 g) in prawn stored with DCI had inverse relationship with storage days but increased with storage days in the WCI. Changes in the values of ash and crude protein were relatively constant as the storage days increased in both treatments. Ice treatments recorded little changes in between storage days for fats. Values of NPN mg N/100 g decreased with days of storage with DCI but increased as the storage increased with WCI. These results obtained in this study showed that ice storage may have contrasting values and importance on the biochemical properties of the freshwater prawn.
