Abstract
    The dominant microbiota of brown shrimp (Crangon crangon) were systematically identified during storage under different conditions. Freshly caught shrimp were processed on board the fishing vessel under the best possible hygienic conditions (IDEAL), unpeeled and manually (sterile) peeled, then stored on ice and at 7.5°C until microbiologically spoiled. Results were compared with industrially processed (INDUSTRIAL) shrimp. Isolates grown on various media were identified by 16S rRNA and gyr B gene sequencing. We examined the total microbiota and microbiological population shifts of shrimp under various storage conditions using denaturant gradient gel electrophoresis (PCR-DGGE). The microbiota differed somewhat during storage and among the various storage conditions; however, members of the genera Psychrobacter and Pseudoalteromonas were found to dominate the microbiota of all shrimp samples regardless of processing procedures or storage conditions. Most isolates could be identified by gyr B gene sequencing as Psychrobacter immobilis or Psychrobacter cibarius. Also Pseudoalteromonas nigrifaciens, Pseudoalteromonas elyakovii or Pseudoalteromonas paragorgicola dominated the microbiota of brown shrimp during storage. Also species from the genera Planocuccus, Exiguobacterium, Carnobacterium, Pseudomonas, Chryseobacterium and Staphylococcus were detected during storage of brown shrimp. Culture-dependent and culture-independent PCR-DGGE analysis produced different results in band patterns. Both methods are therefore required to accurately identify the microbiota and bacterial population shifts on seafood during storage.
