    Microbiological and Biochemical characteristics of smoke-dried Clarias gariepinus was studied for four weeks to assess changes related to belated consumption. Five fishes were bought from 3 different sellers and then mixed together to make a composite sample of fifteen. Analytical methods as described by Bergey’s manual of bacteriology and AOAC were used for weekly Microbiological and Biochemical analysis while Mineral was analyzed biweekly, Microbiological properties fluctuated through the 4 weeks but were within acceptable limits as prescribed by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), microflora isolated study are Penicillium and Aspergillus niger , the bacterial Species isolated are Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella spp and E. coli.
