Fish and seafood products are highly perishable in nature they losses their freshness shortly after death which occurred through several biochemical reactions such as such as changes in the quality of fish protein, lipids level and development of biogenic amines, hypoxanthine, and microbial spoilage. The changes in fish and seafood muscles lead to decay in the quality (e.g in sensory quality and nutritional content of the nutritional value of fish. Seafood and fish quality maintenance is crucial to hinder the loss of this nutritionally quality of fish. Therefore, seafood and fish-processing industry are currently in search of alternative techniques of preservation that can prolong the shelf-life of fresh fish. Various preservation techniques have been developed in order to prevent spoilage in food and to maintain quality and extend shelf life. Edible film and coating are famous in the food industry because they are economically low, abundantly available. Coating and film are produced from several carbohydrates and protein origin and these coating and film are safely applied for enhancement of seafood quality and to prolong their shelf life. Edible film and coating have several advantages because they function in so many ways as following: they are safe to be consumed and biodegradable; are additives to the nutritional value of seafood products; enhancement of organoleptic characteristics of food, like appearance, smell, and ﬂavor; lower packaging volume, weight and waste; contain antimicrobial agents and antioxidants; prolong shelf-life and quality enhancement of non-packaged items; guide over inter-component movement of moisture, gases, lipids, and solutes. Food additives have been integrated successfully into edible film and coating, these additives have anti-browning agents, antimicrobials, flavors, colorants, and several functional substances. Techniques of application include Immersion, spraying, and dripping. This article reviews the types of edible film, their importance and application techniques and their effects on the different materials in seafood.
