In the present study the quality of rohu (Labeo rohita) i.e., brought from other states (ROS) and locally produced in Tripura (RTR) and marketed at Battala (Agartala) fish market was examined in terms of microbiological, biochemical and sensory quality. In addition the microbiological quality of washing water, table tops and ice used in processing of fish in the market was also studied. Higher counts of TPC and pathogenic bacteria were found in all the samples of fish and processing assets. Biochemical and sensory analysis result reveals superior quality of RTR than ROS.
