Abstract
Packaging fishery products under vacuum atmosphere packaging (VAC) and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) conditions can significantly extend the shelf life of raw, refrigerated fish products. There is considerable commercial interest in marketing VAC and MAP refrigerated (never frozen) raw fish fillets. The objective of this study was to determine if Clostridium botulinum toxin development precedes microbiological spoilage in raw, refrigerated flounder fillets. Aquacultured flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) individual fish fillets either were packed with a film having an oxygen transmission rate (OTR) of 3,000 cm<sup>3</sup> m<sup>-2</sup> 24 h<sup>-1</sup> at ...
