Abstract: Bacteria diseases are wide spread and can be of particular importance in fish farming, bacteria exist as micro flora in water until certain environmental conditions such as poor water quality occur, which could impose a stress on fish, thereby making them vulnerable to infection, most especially by pathogenic bacteria. This study was carried out to assess and compare the bacteria diversities in Clarias geriepinus, raised in both concrete and earthen ponds in Aquatech College of Agriculture and Technology. It also aims at determining their public health significance. This experiment was carried between May-August 2015. Fish samples were collected from both ponds, analysed and identify Bacteria present. Bacteria isolated from the earthen ponds are Micrococcus luteu, S. aureus, Bacillus cereus, Proteus vulgaris, Streptococcus faecium. And from the concrete pond are Micrococcus luteu, S.aureus, Bacillus cereus, Proteus vulgaris. From the microbiological analysis bacteria load in samples from earthen pond were found higher than that of the concrete pond, but can still be recommended for human consumption because the microbial load was still within the limit of x105 what specify the standard limit. Therefore, they are acceptable for consumption and also effective proper processing treatment should be employed consumption.
