A study was conducted to monitor the quantitative bacterial ﬂora in the Glossogobius giuris, water and sediment of the pond. Mean water temperature (°C), dissolve oxygen (mg/l), and pH were 19±3, 30±4, 5.6±0.5, 5.1±0.2, 6.8±0.4 and 7.1±0.3 in winter and summer respectively. In winter total viable bacterial count in water ranged from 9.15×103 to 6.20×104 CFU/ml and in sediment ranged from 7.72×107 to 3.80×108 CFU/g. In summer, it ranged from 7.74×104 to 4.67×105 CFU/ml in water and 4.84×108 to 2.77×109 CFU/g in sediment. On the other hand, in ﬁsh, total viable plate count (TVC) ranged from 8.17×105 to 1.12×106 CFU/g in winter and 4.60×106 to 3.06×107 CFU/g in summer from the pond. Gram-negative rods (77%) and motile bacteria (78%) were dominated. Present study on the bacteriology of the pond was very useful in gathering a lot of valuable information regarding the physico-chemical parameters of water and the bacterial load of water, sediment and fish samples.
