An analytical device based on optical fiber detection has been developed for monitoring of trimethylamine (TMA) in fish handling environments and for indirect assessment of fish quality. The fiber optic analyzer was firstly calibrated and then its analytical performance evaluated by correlating TMA levels in fish tissue and in air samples from an experimental chamber containing sardines.
