Tressler observed in 1920 that impurities such as calcium, magnesium, and sulfate noticeably reduced the rate of chloride uptake by fish during dry-salting. This effect, though often quoted, has not been confirmed so far as the writers are aware. Boury (1934), in particular, did not detect substantial differences in the dry-salting of herring in the absence and presence of impurities. The present note describes experiments on brine-salting and dry-salting of cod (Gadus callarias) in the presence and absence of magnesium chloride.
