Little information is known regarding the quality and shelf life of fish stored in ice in the South Pacific Region. For determining
shelf life there are three important areas to look at i.e. sensory, chemical, and biochemical. This investigation concentrated
on the sensory aspect of determining shelf life following the three international schemes such as Torry Research Scheme, EU
scheme and QIM method. In order to determine the most common species, a survey was done through questionnaire form from
different stakeholders. From this survey, four commercially important species were found namely; Indian Mackerel (
), White snapper (
), Grey Mullet (
) and Dash dot goat fish (
Results from the first experiment showed that due to fluctuating temperature it had contributed towards quick spoilage of fish.
Hence, a second experiment was carried out to ensure maintenance of constant temperature within the box. It was noted from
the result of this study that Torry scheme was the most suitable scheme in determining the shelf life of fish. In addition due to
species variation result from this study also showed that Dash dot goat fish tend to be having longer shelf life in ice storage. A new
sensory scheme was developed for the South Pacific Region.
