	%X The shelf life of fish was extended using disinfection
properties of ozone. For this purpose, Trout specimens were exposed
to ozone in the aqueous media for two hours and their microbial
growth and biochemical properties were measured over time.
Microbial growth of ozone treated fish was significantly slower than
control sample, resulting in lower counts of bacteria. According to
the biochemical tests; ozone treatment had no negative effects on fat,
protein and humidity of fish. Peroxide and TVN (Total Volatile
Nitrogen) measurements showed that treatment by ozone increased
the trout shelf life from 4 days to 6 days. According to the sensory
analysis, no changes were observed in color or flavor of the ozone
treated trout.
