: King salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) packaged in air (AIR), nitrogen (N2), or 40:60 carbon dioxide:nitrogen (CO2N2) was stored (0 °C) for 18, 25, and 54 d, respectively. Air packs (AIR9) were also stored at 9 °C for 4 d. A quality index (QI) method was developed to monitor sensory quality of cooked salmon. First detection of spoilage was 1.5, 15, 15, and 21 d for AIR9, AIR, N2, and CO2N2 treatments respectively. Total aerobic and sulfide-producing bacteria, pH, drip loss, Eh, color, texture, ATP derivatives, trimethylamine, total volatile base nitrogen, thiobarbituric acid numbers, and peroxide values were determined. Only total aerobic counts and hypoxanthine were indicators of sensory deterioration across treatments and times.
