The effects of Aloe vera (Aloe vera) and crown of god fruit (Phaleria macrocarpa) on the sensorial, chemical, and microbiological attributes stability of Indian mackerel (Rastrelliger neglectus) during chilled storage for 12 days were studied. Treatment with blended 20% blended Aloe vera reduced the deterioration rate of the sensorial attributes, but treatment with 1% dried powder from crown of god fruit produced brownish color. Moreover, these treatments reduced total plate count (TPC) and total volatile bases nitrogen (TVBN) during the 12-day storage. This study showed that treaments with Aloe vera and crown of god fruit can prolong the shelf-life of Indian mackerel by four days during chilled storage.
