A total of 21 Infusoria species of the family Trichodinidae parasitize in pond fishes of Kaliningrad Province. Species of the genus Trichodina dominate, being represented by 15 species. The majority of revealed Infusoria are characterized by wide specificity. Narrow specificity is characteristic of Trichodina urinaria (the bass) and Trichodinella lotae (the burbot). Extensiveness and intensity of the invasion depends on host species, its biology, and the character of the reservoir.
