|Abstract:||Significant amount of fish catch at Karwar fishing centre is brought from mechanized and non-mechanized means of fishing. During present investigation, quantitative and qualitative estimation of bacterial flora present in gills, stomach and intestine of fresh false trevally, Lactarius lactarius were performed and bacteria were identified to genus level. Mean total plate counts on Nutrient Agar (NA) and Zobell Marine Agar (ZMA) media was found to be 5.45X105 and 1.64X106 cfu/g in gills, in stomach 1.5X104 and 5.5X104 cfu/g, in intestine 4.16X104 and 2.82X105 cfu/g respectively. Gram negative rod shaped bacteria dominated (75.2%) the populations. Among gram positives, Micrococcus spp. and Bacillus spp. were dominant, while among gram negatives, Vibrio spp. occurred in more numbers followed by Pseudomonas spp., Flavobacterium spp., Acinetobacter spp., Alcaligens spp. and Aeromonas spp. where as Sarcina spp. (9.09%) was found only in stomach and Arthrobacter spp. (4.61%) was found only in gills.|
