Abstract: The aim of the current study was to identify the bacteria that can be isolated from various samples of frozen fish and to examine their antibiograms. 45 samples of three types of frozen imported fish (Zuri, filli fish, Pangasius hypophthalmus) (15 of each sample) were collected from different markets in Misan Governorate, during the periods from 1/12/2020 to 15/1/2021. The isolation and identification of bacteria as well as bacterial sensitivity test to antibiotics were performed. The results of this study revealed the presence of different bacterial types in frozen fish samples, the types of the detected bacteria involved the following kinds: Coagulase-negative staphylococcus (2 isolates), Enterobacter aerogenes (1 isolate), and E. coli (1 isolate), but Leuconostoc citreum was not isolated. The amount of the isolation were different in amount depending on the tupes of fish studied. The presence of the detected bacteria was more prevalent in zuri than in white fish fillet and Pangasius hypophthalmus fish. The prevalence of both E.coli bacteria and Enterobacter aerogenes was the highest in zuri, while the contamination with Enterobacter aerogenes, Coagulase negative staphylococcus and Leuconostoc citreum were the lowest in both Pangasius hypophthalmus fish and white fish fillet. In conclusion, different types of bacteria that showed various degree of resistance to antibiotics were isolated from the three types of studied fish.
