Abstract: A total of 30 samples of shrimp were collected from two local sea food processing plant of Rupsha and Mongla Bazar of Khulna district to investigate the microbiological quality. Microbial quality was assessed by total viable count (TVC), total Vibrio count (TViC), total Staphylococcal count (TSC) and total E. coli count (TEC) by inoculating into specific media and the values of all the samples were ranged from log 2.92 to 3.41cfu/gm, log 2.06 to 2.11 cfu/gm, log 2.21 to 2.49 cfu/gm and log 2.14 to 2.22 cfu/gm respectively. Out of 30 samples 10, 11 and 5 samples were found positive for Vibrio spp., Staphylococcus spp. and. E. coli respectively. Results of antibiotic susceptibility test against eight commercially available antibiotics showed all three bacteria were multidrug resistant. This study revealed that the shrimp samples of Mongla contain higher load of bacteria than the samples from Rupsha.
