The transition of the bacterial biota of Kishu saba-narezushi (mackerel-narezushi) in the Hidaka region of Wakayama prefecture, Japan, was analyzed using amplicon sequencing based on the V3-V4 variable region of the 16S rRNA gene. In the non-fermented sample (0 day), the major genus with the highest abundance ratio was Staphylococcus. In the early stage (fermentation for 2 days), however, the genus Lactococcus became a dominant species, and in the later stage (fermentation for 5 days), the abundance ratio of the genus Lactobacillus increased significantly.
