  Aquaculture and its further processing of Bighead Carp has become an growing economic importance in Malaysia. The present study was carried out to know the effects of chilled-frozen storage on the quality of Bighead Carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis). The quality changes in Bighead Carp were evaluated by conducting proximate analysis, oxidative stability determination (TBA Test), microbiological analysis, texture profile analysis, colour measurement and sensory evaluation on fish stored in ice for 1, 4 and 7 days before 4 weeks of frozen storage. The results showed that there was a significant increase (p<0.05) in moisture content on the seventh day of ice storage before freezing. The content of protein and ash decreased significantly and TBA value of both red and white fish muscle increased significantly (p<0.05) on the seventh day of ice storage before freezing. There were no significant different in fat, texture, yeast, aerobic plate (APC) and mould count (PDA). The sensory evaluation also showed that there were no significant differences on overall acceptability among fish ice stored for 1, 4 and 7 days before freezing. The study concluded that the quality of Bighead Carp can be maintained after 4 days of ice storage before 4 weeks of frozen storage.
