The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Zn(C7H5O3)2(C10H8N2)], contains one monomeric zinc complex. The Zn atom is coordinated to one 2,2′-bipyridyl ligand via both N atoms and to two salicyl­ate anions (Hsal) in a bidentate chelating manner involving carboxyl­ate O-atom coordination. The complex exhibits a distorted octahedral geometry about the ZnII atom, with the `apical' positions occupied by one of the two N atoms of the bipyridyl ligand and an O atom from one Hsal ligand; the Zn atom is 0.168 (1) Å out of the `basal' plane. Two intramolecular six-membered hydrogen-bonded rings are present, generated from interactions between the carboxyl and hydroxyl groups of the salicyl­ate ligands. The crystal packing is governed by weak C—H…O and C—H… interactions.
