Figure 1 show the results for the microbial growth of the mesophile and psychrotrophile microorganisms in the cachama fillets for each treatment during the 24 days of the sampling.
The new microorganisms included not only mesophiles (needing a moderate amount of heat to grow), but also thermophiles (needing higher temperatures to grow).
Taking into consideration the actual marination time period in marination for this group, two test groups were formed based on rosemary oil amount (0% rosemary oil (K) and optimum rosemary oil level (B)) and packed with vacuum package at the end of the actual marination time period in marination and examined in terms of microbiological (total mesophile aerobe bacteria (TMAB), psycrophile bacteria (PB), lactic acid bacteria (LAB), Enterobacteria (EB), yeast and mould (YM)), chemical (pH total volatile basic nitrogen value (TVB-N) and thiobarbituric acid number (TBA)), organoleptic (view, texture, colour, odor, total assesment) and colour criteria (L , a and b values).
However, the PBPs from mesophile organisms are sensitive to heat and display a lower stability level at high temperatures (Zhao and Brand, 1989; Sekar and Chandramohan, 2008).

Al-Holy, Lin, and Rasco (2005) investigated the effect of nisin in combination with heat treatments or antimicrobials (such as lactic acid, chlorous acid and sodium hypochlorite) on the inhibition of Listeria monocytogenes and total mesophiles in caviar and concluded that there was no synergistic effect due to the combination of nisin with lactic acid.
