Patterns of genetic variation and life history traits of Zeuxapta seriolae infesting Seriola lalandi across the coastal and oceanic areas in the southeastern Pacific Ocean: potential implications for…
The smallest size of sexual maturity in parasites from NCC is predictive of shorter life cycles, and their high genetic diversity suggests high evolutionary potential and high transmission of this parasite to farmed hosts.

Morphological examination and molecular analyses of specimens of the genus Limacia collected in the Eastern Pacific Ocean indicate that four species of Limacia occur in the region, and a genetically and morphologically distinct tropical species ranging from Baja California to Panama.
Molecular and morphological analyses reveal that the pathogen Benedenia seriolae (Monogenea: Capsalidae) is a complex species: Implications for yellowtail Seriola spp. aquaculture

Acanthocotyle gurgesiella n. sp. (Monogenea: Acanthocotylidae) from the deep-sea skate Gurgesiella furvescens (Rajidae) in the south-eastern Pacific
A new species of monogenean parasite of the deep-sea skate Gurgesiella furvescens is described and can be identified by a combination of morphological characteristics, including the number of testes, number of radial rows of sclerites in the pseudohaptor, aperture of the genital pore and shape of the vitelline follicles.
Potential role of ectoparasites (Zeuxapta seriolae and Caligus lalandei) in the transmission of pathogenic bacteria in yellowtail kingfish Seriola lalandi, inferred from cultivable microbiota and…
