Changes in Lactic Acid Bacteria of Squid with Low Salt during Fermentation

저염 오징어젓갈 숙성중 젖산균의 변화

Isolation and identification of predominant microorganisms in fermented squid with low salt were carried out during fermentation at $10^{\circ}C$. Dominant strains were lactic acid bacteria(80%) including Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus brevis, Leuconostoc sp., Pediococcus sp. and Streptococcus sp. Leuconostoc, Pediococcus and Streptococcus were shown in the early stage of fermentation and gradually increased until optimum stage of squid fermentation, and then decreased rapidly. Lactobacillus grew lastingly during fermentation. Yeasts were detected in the middle stage of fermentation and shown rapid increase after the last stage of fermentation, suggesting that yeasts participate in putrefaction of fermented squid with low salt.
