Abstract
    A comparison was made between binary ice (Flo-iceTM), for chilling in the chute and storage, and flake ice (for storage only) of yellow gurnard (Trigla lucerna) caught during summer. The use of binary ice was evaluated with respect to time- temperature profiles and the quality of whole yellow gurnard and cooked fillets. It was observed that the time needed to chill yellow gurnard on board of the commercial trawler using Flo-iceTM for chilling in the chute is almost 10 times shorter, compared with storage in flake ice without pre-cooling. Using the Quality Index Method, no significant differences were detected between yellow gurnard chilled and stored in Flo-iceTM and stored in flake-ice without pre-cooling. The use of Flo-iceTM for chilling in the chute and storage of yellow gurnard as used in the described trials did not significantly affect the redness, the salt uptake (p=0.05) and taste of the cooked fillet of yellow gurnard. In conclusion it can be stated that Flo- iceTM is suitable for rapid chilling and storage of whole yellow gurnard on board of commercial trawlers.
