Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the shelf life of whole shrimp from Jazzan waters. The shrimp samples were collected from five fish companies at Jeddah fishery wholesale center. Samples were stored in ice and assessed for microbial, chemical, and sensory changes (for raw and cooked) every 72 hr for 9 days. Microbial result indicated that psychrotrophic counts increases significantly from 6.25-6.92 to 8.26-8.47 lg CFU/gm, while the mean of coliform counts (1.36-2.42 lg MPN/gm) and staphylocccci (0.32-3.74 lg CFU/gm) did not increase significantly (P>0.05) throughout storage time. The levels (mean) of total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N) at day six were in the range of 30.3-63.35 mg/100gm. Slight increase of pH from 7.27-7.34 to 7.64-7.72 over the storage period was noticed. Panelists rejected all raw samples based on overall acceptance at day six, while all cooked samples were rejected in the same day based on all tested sensory attributes. From this study, changes most indicative ice-stored shrimp were microbial count and sensory attributes followed by TVB-N and pH.
