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 107 and 108 kob mL-1. Coliform count ranked 2nd after the aerob total count. Most of micrococcus and staphylococcus were found at 104-105 level. Although, the count of enterococcus was generally between 105 and 106, the count of enterobacter count was generally 106-107. Mold was not isolated from samples. Coliform bacteria level was 107-108 kob mL-1. However, E. coli was under the detection level in most of the samples while it was 104-105 in the rest. On the other hand, Salmonella highly important for food infections was determined in 3% of the carp fish samples.
