Marine Subsidies in Freshwater: Effects of Salmon Carcasses on Lipid Class and Fatty Acid Composition of Juvenile Coho Salmon


Returning adult salmon represent an important source of energy, nutrients, and biochemicals to their natal streams and may therefore have a quantitative effect on the energy levels of stream-resident salmonids. We tested this hypothesis by constructing simulated streams for coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch to which we added 0, 1, and 4 carcasses/m2 (0, 0.71, and […]

Lipid Composition of Alaska Pink Salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and Alaska Walleye Pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) Byproducts


In Alaska, over one million metric tons (MT) per year of fish processing byproducts are produced. The objective of this study was to determine the fatty acid profile and quantitate lipid classes in the extracted oils of byproducts from pollock (heads, frames, viscera, skins) and salmon (heads, viscera). In pollock, viscera had the highest percent […]

Alaska King Crab: Fatty Acid Composition, Carotenoid Index and Proximate Analysis


Proximate analysis, carotenoid index, and fatty acid composition of the lipids were determined on five separate types of cooked and frozen king crab meat. Similar fatty acid content was found in all types of meat. Eight fatty acids (16:0, 16:1, 18:0, 18:1, 20:1, 22:1, 20:5 and 22:6) accounted for about 77% of the total fatty […]

Nutritional composition and sensory attributes of Alaskan flatfishes compared to plaice (Pleuronectes platessa)


Proximate composition, fatty acids profiles and other nutritional values were evaluated for fillets of Limanda aspera (yellowfin sole), Lepidopsetta bilineata (southern rock sole) and Lepidopsetta polyxystra (northern rock sole) and compared to North Sea plaice (Pleuronectes platessa). Additional information is given on the composition of fillets from arrowtooth flounder (Atheresthes stomias). Plaice (0.8% lipid) and […]

Stabilizing Oils from Smoked Pink Salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha)


Smoking of meats and fish is one of the earliest preservation technologies developed by humans. In this study, the smoking process was evaluated as a method for reducing oxidation of pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) oils and also maintaining the quality of oil in aged fish prior to oil extraction. Salmon heads that were subjected to […]

Purification and Characterization of Pepsin-Solubilized Collagen from Skin and Connective Tissue of Giant Red Sea Cucumber (Parastichopus californicus)


Pepsin-solubilized collagen (PSC) was extracted from giant red sea cucumbers (Parastichopus californicus) and characterized for denaturation temperature (Td), maximum transition temperature (Tm), enzyme-digested peptide maps, and gel-forming capability. SDS-PAGE showed that PSCs from giant red sea cucumber skin and connective tissue were both type I collagens, consisting of three α1 chains of approximately 138 kDa […]

Calcium Compounds to Improve Gel Functionality of Pacific Whiting and Alaska Pollock Surimi


The effect of calcium compounds during three thermal treatments with or without setting was studied. Formation of cross-linking was investigated using SDS-PAGE. Solubility varied. Calcium acetate, chloride, and caseinate were extremely soluble. Calcium lactate had good solubility at 0.2% or higher, then in descending order were phosphate, citrate, sulfate, and carbonate. Effects of temperature on […]

Evaluation of supplemental fish bone meal made from Alaska seafood processing byproducts and dicalcium phosphate in plant protein based diets for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)


We report performance of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) fed a balanced dietary mix of plant proteins supplemented with either fish bone meal (FBM) derived from Alaskan seafood processing byproducts or dicalcium phosphate. Seven experimental diets were formulated to contain two levels of dicalcium phosphate or two levels of two different kinds of FBM in all […]

Chemical Composition and Texture of Commercial Geoduck Clams (Panopea abrupta) Harvested in Southeast Alaska


The objectives of this study were to determine chemical composition of the siphon and the mantle of commercialsize geoducks clams harvested in Southeast Alaska, and to measure textural differences between the two muscle tissues, comparing them with their frozen counterparts. Live geoducks were processed using standard industry practices and analyzed either fresh or after 90 […]

Characterization of rheological and physicochemical properties of Alaska walleye pollock (Gadus chalcogrammus) roe


Alaska walleye pollock (Gadus chalcogrammus) roe is a commercial product of the Alaska pollock fishery. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to determine functional properties of pollock roe through rheological and physicochemical analyses. Pollock roe rheological properties were determined by flow sweep and frequency sweep measurements. Zeta potential of the roe was measured at […]
