NORWAY - Scientists and stockfish graders are currently studying why stockfish is struck with mucoso. The answer is worth many millions for the stockfish industry. Mucoso is a condition whereby the fish meat dissolves and takes on a gelatinous texture after rehydration, resulting in a considerable reduction in quality and that parts of the fish must be discarded. Last winter, the Stockfish Forum and Fiskeriforskning started a comprehensive project to discover what causes this damage to stockfish. Source: Fiskeriforskning
