Interpretive summary: The shelf life of seafood may be extended by using the natural antimicrobial agents (ingredients) and modified atmosphere (MA) technology. In this study the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa inoculated into catfish fillet treated with MA and allyl isothiocyanate (AIT) was examined. It was found that using MA and AIT together inhibited Pseudomonas aeruginosa growth and extended product shelf life, even at abuse temperatures. This process may be used to extend the shelf-life of seafood products.
