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, <i style="">Lactarius lactarius</i> 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 5.45X10<sup>5</sup> and 1.64X10<sup>6</sup> cfu/g in gills, in stomach 1.5X10<sup>4</sup> and 5.5X10<sup>4</sup> cfu/g, in intestine 4.16X10<sup>4</sup> and 2.82X10<sup>5</sup> cfu/g respectively. Gram negative rod shaped bacteria dominated (75.2%) the populations. Among gram positives, <i style="">Micrococcus spp.</i> and <i style="">Bacillus spp.</i> were dominant, while among gram negatives, <i style="">Vibrio spp</i>. occurred in more numbers followed by <i style="">Pseudomonas spp., Flavobacterium spp., Acinetobacter spp., Alcaligens spp.</i> and <i style="">Aeromonas spp</i>. where as <i style="">Sarcina spp</i>. (9.09%) was found only in stomach and <i style="">Arthrobacter spp</i>. (4.61%) was found only in gills.
