  • A. A. Ibrahim

Boulti fish (Tilapia nilotica Linn.) from Naser's lake in Aswan was converted to a ready marketable product (paste) in aluminium tubes. The quality of the product was ascertained by chemical indices. The product has a good flavour and can be kept for 5 weeks without undesirable changes. It is concluded that the production of fish paste in aluminium tubes is one of the possibilities of converting fish to precooked product.
