Abstract. A ternary semigroup is a nonempty set together with a ternary multiplication which is associative. Any semigroup can be reduced to a ternary semigroup but a ternary semigroup does not necessarily reduce to a semigroup. In this paper, we give some characterizations of minimal and maximal quasi-ideals in ternary semigroups.
