ABSTRACT

To enlist eight independent laboratories to jointly evaluate the performance of the ammonia ion-selective electrode as a rapid, simple screening procedure for seafood quality. The protocol guidelines outlined by the Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC) International will be used, and total volatile base and trimethylamine analyses will also be done, where possible. The study will evaluate the success of this technique on fatty fish, in comparison to results of prior work on lean fish flesh. All data will be analyzed statistically.
