fish sauce, fish paste and shrimp paste, were tested to determine the occurrence of histamine and histamine-forming bacteria. The
levels of pH, salt content, total volatile basic nitrogen, trimethylamine, and aerobic plate count in all samples ranged from 4.8% to
6.5%, 16.2% to 45.3%, 51 to 275 mg/100 g, 5.4 to 53.9 mg/100 g and 1.0 to 4.2 log CFU/g, respectively. The average content for each
of eight different biogenic amines in all samples was less than 90 ppm, except for histamine which has an average content of 394 ppm
in fish sauce, 263 ppm in fish paste, and 382 ppm in shrimp paste. Most of the tested fermented fish products (92.6%) had histamine
levels greater than the FDA guideline of 50 ppm, while seven of them (25.9%) contained >500 ppm of histamine. Although Bacillus
coagulans and Bacillus megaterium were identified as the two histamine-producing bacteria capable of producing 13.7 and 8.1 ppm
of histamine, respectively, in trypticase soy broth broth supplemented with 1.0% L-histidine, they were not determined to be the main
contributors to histamine accumulation in these fermented fish products.
