Abstract

In this study, a 100 carp fish that offered for sale in public bazaar in Afyonkarahisar were microbiologically examined in 2009 period (15 June to 15 July). In most of these samples, aerob total count was found between 10(7) and 10(8) kob mL(-1). Coliform count ranked 2nd after the aerob total count. Most of micrococcus and staphylococcus were found at 10(4)-10(5) level. Although, the count of enterococcus was generally between 10(5) and 10(6), the count of enterobacter count was generally 10(6)-10(7). Mold was not isolated from samples. Coliform bacteria level was 10(7)-10(8) kob mL(-1). However, E. coli was under the detection level in most of the samples while it was 10(4)-10(5) in the rest. On the other hand, Salmonella highly important for food infections was determined in 3% of the carp fish samples.
