Stress responses influencing fillet quality of trawled Atlantic cod and haddock
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2018-12-12)
In this thesis, an experimental swim tunnel and cod-end was used as a model to investigate how stress during various stages of trawl capture affects fillet quality in terms of residual blood, time and hardness of post-mortem muscle stiffness and muscle colour of cod and haddock. In addition, the effect of stress on importance of timing of euthanasia was also addressed. The first stage of trawl ...
