Surface hydrophobicity and functional properties of myofibrillar proteins of mantle from frozen-stored squid (Illex argentinus) caught either jigging machine or trawling.
ABSTRACT The physicochemical and functional properties of actomyosin from fins of frozen, stored squid caught either by jigging machines (AME 1) or by trawling (AME2) were investigated.
It is widely accepted that the catching method influences the postmortem biochemical changes in fish muscles (Huss 1995), and it has also been reported that when squid are caught by jigging machines, higher meat quality and yield are obtained (Leta 1989).
