Breakdown of intramuscular connective tissue in cod (Gadus morhua L.) and spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor O.) related to gaping



Breakdown of intramuscular connective tissue in cod (Gadus morhua L.) and spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor O.) related to gaping



LWT Food Science and Technology 39(10): 1143-1154



The purpose of this work was to compare the microstructure of muscle connective tissue in cod and wolffish and to study its degradation during ice-storage to determine which structural alterations are related to the gaping phenomenon. Gaping is very often found in fillets of codfish, but not in wolffish. The results showed that detachments between myofibres occurred prior to the myotomes to myocommata detachments, which occurred more rapidly and to a larger extent in cod than in wolffish.
