Abstract

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF CHITOSAN AGAINST PATHOGENS ISOLATED FROM LETHRINUS SPP. AND SILLAGO SIHAMA

K.B. Sivakami and *Dr. M. Anand

ABSTRACT

Fishes are important nutritious food around the world. In the attempt of exploring the edible coating of chitosan in increasing shelf-life of fish in cold storage, the present study deals with antimicrobial activit y of chitosan against selected pathogens which are isolated from fishes Lethrinus spp. and Sillago sihama. The chitosan concentration of 30, 60 and 90 μg/ ml were used for anti-microbial activity. Our study shows that chitosan at a concentration of 90 μg/ml exhibits apprecial antimicrobial activity against the pathogens isolated from fish samples. It postulates a notion that chitosan coating will prevents the invasion of microbes and thie spoiling action in fish spoilage.

Keywords: Fish spoilage, Chitosan, edible coating and shelf life.
