Abstract: This research intends to identify lysine-producing bacteria from rotting banana and pineapple fruits, screen the bacteria for lysine accumulation, and use active isolates to produce lysine in a submerged medium. Despite being a crucial part of both human and animal nutrition, lysine is one of the amino acids that the body does not naturally synthesize. As a result, it is supplemented with food and food items, particularly cereal goods, to improve its protein quality. 'New Market' in Amorji-nike, Enugu State, was where the banana and pineapple fruits were bought; a total of 10 fruits were consumed. Using sterile methods, some degraded fruit tissues from the banana and pineapple were added to the nutritional agar in dishes that were covered and incubated at room temperature. The plates were identified by biochemical tests. The bacteria isolated from the decayed banana and pineapple fruits were Pseudomonas species, Corynebacterium species, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus species, Escherichia coli, Acetobacter aceti, Erwinia herbicola, and Gluconobacter oxydans. Only two of these bacteria—Bacillus spp. and Acetobacter aceti—were identified as lysine producers.
