Changes During Frozen Storage

The gel-forming ability of surimi made from fresh (one- to two-day-old) fish in good condition does not change significantly for up to one year when held at a constant temperature below — 20°C (21,22). However, when the surimi is stored at higher temperatures, the gel-forming ability gradually decreases; this is attributed to a decrease in extractable actomyosin subsequent to freeze denaturation of proteins (22). Temperature fluctuation during short-term transportation does not significantly reduce surimi quality. However, extended periods of temperature fluctuation (more than three weeks) do cause significant loss in quality (23).
