Abstract: Shortfin scad (Decapterus macrosoma) is a pelagic fishery resource and has a high level of production. Fish is very easy to lose quality, so if fish are not handled properly during the distribution chain, the quality of fish is poor when it reaches consumers. This study aims to determine changes in the physical, chemical quality and food safety of Shortfin scad in each distribution chain. The research was conducted from November 2021 to February 2022. The method used in this study was observation using purposive sampling technique. The test results show the initial value of distribution in FLB Lonrae, namely pH; 6,6, TVB ; 9.3 mg-N/100g, peroxide value ; 5.06 mEq/kg, and negative formalin. The final value of distribution after arriving at the consumer area is pH ; 5,7, TVB ; 27,5 mg-N/100g, peroxide value ; 6.04 mEq/kg, and negative formalin. Overall, the quality of the shortfin scad after landing until it reaches the consumer area experiences a change in quality decline in each distribution chain. However, the shortfin scad that arrives at the end consumer area does not exceed the quality standard of fish that is not safe for consumption so that the shortfin scad is still fresh and fit for consumption.
