Title: Investigation into post-harvest losses of cured Nile perch (Lates niloticus) in Kenya
Authors: Gitonga, Nancy K.
Issue Date: 1990
Publisher: © N.K. Gitonga
Abstract: A survey of causes of post-harvest losses of Nile perch (Lates niloticus) carried out in Kenya in 1987, revealed that losses are experienced by both fish processors and traders of cured fish during processing, handling and storage. The heaviest losses occur during the rainy season which also corresponds to the period when the highest catches are realised. The major causes of losses were found to be bacterial deterioration, blowfly larvae infestation, moulds and fragmentation. [Continues.]
