Abstract

Bacterial skin microflora of eel obtained from Mugla (Turkey) province were studied. The aerobic bacteria associated with skin and slime were estimated using the dilution plate technique. The dominant bacterial species were Pseudomonas spp. (17.23%), Acinetobacter baumannii (15.51%) and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (12.05%). A lower frequency of Gram-positive bacteria (18.93%) was found in samples.
