    Abstract

    Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) was applied to predict chemical composition in minced raw fish samples used to make fishmeal. The coefficients of determination (R-calibration(2)) and standard error in cross validation (SECV) were 0.99 (3.86) and 0.96 (8,01) in g kg(-1) for moisture and oil, respectively. Total volatile nitrogen (TVN) gave R-calibration(2) and SECV of 0.96 (3.51) in mg g(-1). Temperature also Was predicted by NIRS, yielding R-calibration(2): 0.98 and SECV: 1.07 degreesC. We conclude that NIRS can be used successfully to assess the chemical composition and storage conditions in minced raw fish used by the fishmeal industry.
