Title: Fish flesh agar medium - a suitable experimental medium for the detection of spoilage bacteria
Authors: Chandrasekaran, M

Issue Date: 1985
Abstract: The spoilage characteristics of bacterial strains were studied by growing them at 28 _+ 2 °C in agar and broth media prepared with sterile fish and prawn flesh homogenates. The percentage of spoilers found among the bacterial isolates tested, as shown by odour production and halo zone formation, was independent of the source of flesh used. Indole and fluorescent pigment production were also observed in the broth. Pseudomonas, Vibrio and Acinetobacter exhibited faster growth in flesh media than in the usual artificial media. Decrease of protein and lipid concentration in the clear zone of agar media suggests the utilization of the available substrate by spoilage bacteria.
