Caligus uranoscopi is reported for the first time from the east coast of Algeria and M. barbatus barbatus is a newly recorded host for this parasite. The(More)
Three species of Cymothoidae (Crustacea, Isopoda), Emetha audouini, Ceratothoa collaris and C. steindachneri are here reported from Algeria. The presence of E. audouini and C. collaris is confirmed there and these two species are reported for the first time from Béjaïa, Jijel and Annaba.

A total of 455 Boops boops (Linnaeus, 1758) and 953 Trachurus trachurus Linnaeus, 1758 from the east coast of Algeria were examined for their parasitic Nematoda. Two hundred ninety-five specimens of larval stages L3 and L4 were collected from the peritoneal cavity of these two examined fishes. Photonic and scanning electronic microscopy (SEM) studies were(More)
Eighteen female specimens of Argulus vittatus (Rafinesque-Smaltz, 1814) were recently collected from the Algerian coast. As until now this species was poorly described, this contribution redescribes this species with more precise drawings on the general morphology and appendages, using this fresh material. For the first time, two new hosts are identified.(More)
