Water holding capacity, thiobarbituric acid value, textural properties, total bacterial counts and sensory evaluation were studied to determine the quality of hairtail fish thawed in air, running water, and with a vacuum and microwave method. The results showed that: 1) thawing methods have an important effect on water holding capacity, thiobarbituric acid value and textural properties; 2) thawing methods have a significant sterilizing effect on frozen products; 3) if different parameters are considered comprehensively, vacuum thawing is the best method.
