Abstract

Cooked prawns from retail and wholesale outlets in the Brisbane region included a large proportion with high bacterial counts (10(6)-10(8)/g) indicating a short remaining shelflife. Microbially inferior product entering the wholesale and retail trade indicated poor handling and storage practices from point of capture all along the distribution chain to the retail outlets. Current handling practices need to be upgraded and HACCP principles adopted.
