Anisakid Parasites of Fishes Caught on the African Shelf
The study shows that the parasitic fauna of fishes reflects not only the geographic range of anisakid nematodes but also the feeding behavior of the hosts serving as links in the parasites' life cycles.
Molecular identification of European flounder (Platichthys flesus) and its hybrids with European plaice (Pleuronectes platessa)
The set of molecular markers, two mitochondrial (cytochrome b and D-loop) and two nuclear (the ribosomal marker ITS and parathyroid hormone-related protein gene), was constructed to identify the two flatfish species and their hybrids.
Ascaridoidea: a simple DNA assay for identification of 11 species infecting marine and freshwater fish, mammals, and fish-eating birds.
Selected mitochondrial genes as species markers of the Arctic Contracaecum osculatum complex
Among the C. osculatum species studied, the highest nucleotide diversity was recorded in the CYTB, CO3 and ND5 genes, which may be useful in species identification of the very closely related Contracaecum sibling species.

Parasitic nematodes from the body cavity of 94 Greenland halibut caught in the Barents Sea were examined using both morphological and molecular methods, and the number of parasites was directly proportional to the fish length.

The presence of Ascaridoidea in the Barents Sea is associated with the distribution of hosts and varying food preferences related to the age of fish, and the abundance of parasites varied between different host species.
