Abstract

Fish which has been cured or are in the process of being cured by traditional methods are usually infested by insects, posing a real problem to traders and processors, especially in Nigeria. The effects of 0.03% actellic 50 EC solution and vegetable oil on insect infestion were studied using West African sardines, Sardinella maderensis. Actellic solution was more effective in combating insect infestation than vegetable oil. Appearance and perceived smoked fish flavour of fish treated with Actellic and vegetable oil differed (P<0.05), while taste was unaffected by treatment. Actellic 50 EC solution though effective, could be subject to abuse
