The effects of five thawing methods (ultrasonic thawing [UT], radiofrequency thawing [RFT], water immersion thawing [WIT], microwave thawing [MT], and cold storage thawing [CST]) on physicochemical properties, water migration, and protein characteristic of whole frozen pompano (Trachinotus ovatus) were investigated and compared with fresh samples (FS). The physicochemical changes of thawed pompano were analyzed based on pH, total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N), color difference. The protein aggregation, physicochemical properties and conformation of myofibrillar proteins (MPs) were evaluated by Sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, differential scanning calorimetry, and Raman spectra, respectively.
