Market conditions in Tual City and Southeast Maluku Regency that lack sanitation and hygiene allow cross-contamination of fishery products sold, especially fresh fish, so it needs to do microbiological testing of Total Plate Total (ALT), Escherichia colidan Salmonella. The results showed that the total number of fresh fish tested showed that the number of bacterial colonies was 3.2 x 103 CFU/g to 8.7 x 104CFU/g has not exceeded the SNI set limits, for Coliform 20 APM/g to 1100 APM/g in fish samples and for water 240-1100 APM/gt but no E. colidan Salmonell content was found in all samples tested.
