Abstract: Aquatic products are prone to physicochemical, microbial and sensory changes during postmortem storage and transportation because of their high water and highly unsaturated fatty acid contents and high endogenous protease activity as well as the combined action of exogenous microorganisms and endogenous enzymes, resulting in quality deterioration. Modeling the shelf-life of aquatic products based on changes in sensitive indexes is of great significance to the rapid prediction and evaluation of the quality of aquatic products. This paper summarizes the connotation of and the methods (isothermal method and accelerated shelf-life testing method) used for the shelf-life prediction of aquatic products during storage and transportation and the classification of shelf-life prediction models established, and it reviews the recent progress in this research area, with the aim of providing a new idea for modeling for the shelf-life prediction of aquatic products.

Key words: aquatic products; storage and transportation; shelf-life prediction; modeling
