Abstract: Since fish meat, which has a wide range of consumption among people, may harbors pathogens its microbial quality is crucially important in public health. This study focuses on the level of bacterial counts in two kinds of Fish (Scomberomorus commerson, Sphyraena gello) harvested from some south coastal areas of Iran (Booshehr Province) subjected to refrigerated-transportion to Kazeroon. Hence, this research project was commenced to address whether freshly harvested fish, stored under 2-3 h refrigeration, presented any likely problems such as generating bacterial levels in excess of regulatory standards. In this study, 25 samples of Scomberomorus commerson and 25 samples of Sphyraena gello were studied for total bacteria, coliform and Vibrio parahaemolyticus counts. However, non of the samples exceeded the standard value and this study shows that the overall microbial quality of fresh South-harvested fish is acceptable and according to the standard values, while it is loaded in Kazeroon.
