The aim of present study was to extend shelf life of snake head fish (fillets) harvested from Krishiratna Bio-Flock Fish Farm, Hubalwadi, Sangli, Maharashtra, by employing potassium sorbate. It was undertaken by dipping fillets in different concentration of potassium sorbate solution for period of 15 minutes. The treatments were, C (Control), T1 (500 ppm potassium sorbate) T2 (1000 ppm potassium sorbate) and T3 (1500 ppm potassium sorbate). Microbial parameters viz. Changes in Total Plate Count (TPC) and Coliform count (CC) were used to detect shelf life. The result s obtained indicated that the treatment with 1000 ppm potassium sorbate (T2) was efficient in extending shelf life of fillet for twenty days when stored at -13 ± 2 °C showing TPC count of 5.41(log cfu/g).
