The parasite community of Phycis blennoides (Brünnich, 1768) from the Balearic Sea in relation to diet, biochemical markers, histopathology and environmental variables
TLDR
The parasite community of P. blennoides was characterized by high abundance, richness and diversity, and Cysts of unknown etiology in fish gills were detected at higher prevalence than in any other fish from the same area.
A new species of Bathycreadium Kabata, 1961 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from Phycisblennoides (Brünnich) (Gadiformes: Phycidae) in the western Mediterranean
TLDR
The new species is distinguished from B. flexicolle Kabata, 1961, B. elongata (Maillard, 1970) and B. nanaflexicolle Dronen, Rubec & Underwood, 1977 by the much smaller size of the body and most organs, the large ventral sucker and sucker width ratio and the shape of the gonads.
Morphological and molecular description of Rhadinorhynchus laterospinosus Amin, Heckmann & Ha, 2011 (Acanthocephala, Rhadinorhynchidae) from marine fish off the Pacific coast of Vietnam
TLDR
The molecular profile of this acanthocephalan, based on 18S rDNA and cox1 genes, groups with other Rhadinorhynchus species and further seems to confirm the paraphyly of the genus, which is discussed.
Composition and seasonal dynamics of the parasite communities of Scyliorhinus canicula (L., 1758) and Galeus melastomus Rafinesque, 1810 (Elasmobranchii) from the NW Mediterranean Sea in relation to
TLDR
The parasite communities of Scyliorhinus canicula and Galeus melastomus are studied for the first time in the Mediterranean and monogenean parasites were associated to high turbidity and temperature levels, which are known to enhance monogenan infection and reproductive success.
Parasites of the deep-sea fish Mora moro ( Risso, 1810) from the NW Mediterranean Sea and relationship with fish diet and enzymatic biomarkers
TLDR
Fish parasite load, condition indices, diet, enzymatic activity of muscular acetylcholinesterase and lactate dehydrogenase, intensity of splenic melano-macrophage centres and hepatic granulomas are proposed as potentially useful as biological tags for geographical discrimination of M. moro.
The parasite community of the sharks Galeus melastomus, Etmopterus spinax and Centroscymnus coelolepis from the NW Mediterranean deep-sea in relation to feeding ecology and health condition of the
TLDR
The parasite communities of three deep-dwelling shark species in the NW Mediterranean are described and detailed parasite-prey relationships have been discussed and possible transmission pathways suggested for the three hosts.
Preliminary results on the uptake and biochemical response to water-exposure of Tamiflu® (oseltamivir phosphate) in two marine bivalves
TLDR
Data indicate the usefulness of CE-related activities as biomarkers for OST exposure in bivalves, and higher metabolism of OST seemed to occur in mussels, since both OST and OST-C were found in hemolymph, whereas in clams only the parent compound was detected.
Multibiomarker approach to fipronil exposure in the fish Dicentrarchus labrax under two temperature regimes.
TLDR
The results should be considered in future environmental risk assessment studies since fipronil could be hazardous to fish species, particularly those inhabiting estuarine ecosystems exposed to the discharge of agriculture runoffs where this pesticide is mainly used.
Multibiomarker biomonitoring approach using three bivalve species in the Ebro Delta (Catalonia, Spain)
TLDR
Mussels and razor shells provided a more sensitive biochemical response to pollution than cockles, and environmental variables, bivalve reproductive condition, and marine phycotoxins did not seem to have a relevant effect on the biomarkers assessed.
Drivers of parasite community structure in fishes of the continental shelf of the western Mediterranean: the importance of host phylogeny and autecological traits.
TLDR
These analyses revealed that the parasite fauna of the region is rich and dominated by digeneans, and phylogeny and fish autecological traits were the best predictors of parasite community metrics in the host-parasite system studied.
