  • 1. FUNGI ASSOCIATED WITH SPOILAGE OF SMOKED DRIED FISH

    » ABSTRACT Fish is highly nutritious with high protein content. However, it is a suitable medium for growth of microorganisms, if poorly processed (Oparaku and Mgbenka, 2012). The growth of microorganisms and other non microbial activities such as lipid oxidation contribute to the deterioration of fish products (Martin, 2010). An increase in the ambient temperature triggers favourable conditions for...Continue Reading »
