The ichthyofauna of the Black Sea is comparatively poor and includes about 200 species (Boltacev 2003). The gobiid fishes (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) are a large group of approximated by 28 species inhabiting coastal habitats of the Black Sea (Miller 1986, Smirnov 1986, Rass 1993). Five Black-Sea gobiid species are important commercially (Smirnov 1986) and they have also been targeted by anglers. In the north-western Black Sea (NWBS), gobiids can be found in different salinities ranging from… Expand

The Parasite Fauna of the Gobiid Fish (Actinopterygii, Gobiidae) in the Sukhyi Lyman, Black Sea
TLDR
Seventeen species of parasites are registered in the gobiids in the Sukhyi Lyman, Black Sea, with the marine tubenose goby Proterorhinus marmoratus having the richest parasite fauna, and the grass goby Zosterisessor ophiocephalus has the fewest number of parasite species. Expand
Metazoan parasite fauna of the round goby Neogobius melanostomus Pallas, 1811 (Perciformes: Gobiidae) collected from the Black Sea coast at Sinop, Turkey
TLDR
Round gobies (Neogobius melanostomus) were collected from a small stream connected to the Black Sea coast of Sinop, Turkey and examined for metazoan parasites and infection prevalence and mean intensity values were determined and discussed. Expand
The colonization of the invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus by parasites in new localities in the southwestern Baltic Sea
TLDR
The round goby Neogobius melanostomus is a bottom-dwelling fish native for the Ponto-Caspian basin, which started to colonize the Baltic Sea since 1991, and the processes of colonization have the same tendency as in the Gulf of Gdańsk. Expand
Parasites of non-native gobies in the Włocławek Reservoir on the lower Vistula River, first comprehensive study in Poland
TLDR
A parasitological study of Ponto-Caspian gobies, including the monkey goby Neogobius fluviatilis, racer goby Babka gymnotrachelus and tubenose goby Proterorhinus semilunaris, carried out over four years in the lower Vistula River, finds that alien fish reinforce populations of those parasites in invaded waters. Expand
Metazoan Parasite Faunas of Three Gobiid Species (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) Inhabiting the Lower Kızılırmak Delta in Samsun: A Comparative Study.
TLDR
This is the first study on metazoan parasite faunas of N. marmoratus in Turkey, and the maximum parasite diversity was found in N. fluviatilis, which was infected with 9 parasite species, while Pr. Expand
Parasitofauna of allochthonous fish species in the open waters of the danube river basin (Serbian part) – impact on the native fish fauna
TLDR
In this review data on parasitofauna of allochthonous fish species in the Danube River Basin in Serbia is presented and the large presence of alien fish species and its parasites creates a serious threat to the stability of freshwater ecosystems and the survival of the native ichthyofauna. Expand
Parasite infection of the non-indigenous round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) in the Baltic Sea
TLDR
Investigating parasite communities and infection rates of the non-indigenous round goby Neogobius melanostomus in two localities in the NE Baltic Sea revealed that infection intensity was positively linked to total body length and parasite species richness, and was on average 2.7 individuals higher in summer and autumn than in winter and spring. Expand
Infection rates and prevalence of metazoan parasites of the non-native round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) in the Baltic Sea
TLDR
The round goby has not retained parasites from its area of origin, but instead has been successively colonized by native generalist parasites, and overall parasite richness is still quite low around the Baltic compared to the native areas. Expand
Communities of metazoan parasites of two fishes of the Proterorhinus genus (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae)
TLDR
The differences between the parasite component communities of two Proterorhinus gobies are explained by different quality of habitats and available intermediate hosts. Expand
The parasite community of round goby Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) newly introduced into the upper Elbe
TLDR
Only the acanthocephalan Pomphorhynchus tereticollis was found in high numbers and occurred in both seasons, which is typical for Ponto-Caspian gobiids introduced far from their host range, and complies with the predictions of the ‘enemy release hypothesis’. Expand

Colonization and seasonality of goby (Gobiidae, Teleostei) parasites from the southwestern Baltic Sea
TLDR
The results reveal that the composition of infracommunities depends on the local parasite fauna and on the strength of general host defense mechanisms, whereas that of the component community is dependent on the susceptibility of hosts to single parasite species and to the density of intermediate parasite stages. Expand
Parasite communities of the Salzhaff (Northwest Mecklenburg, Baltic Sea). I. Structure and dynamics of communities of littoral fish, especially small-sized fish
TLDR
The theory of empty niches propagated by some parasitologists is critically discussed and substituted by the assumption of variable niche widths for the main causes of the infestation of fish hosts may be their ages and the availability of parasites due to the presence of intermediate hosts. Expand
Establishment of gobiidae in the great lakes basin
A tubenose goby (Proterorhinus marmoratus), a European endangered species native to the Black and Caspian seas, was recovered on 11 April 1990 from the travelling screens of the Belle River PowerExpand
Parasite communities of the Salzhaff (Northwest Mecklenburg, Baltic Sea) II. Guild communities, with special regard to snails, benthic crustaceans, and small-sized fish
TLDR
The parasite fauna of the Salzhaff area is influenced by eutrophication stress, which leads to a high level of productivity and, consequently, to great densities in primary consumers such as snails and crustaceans. Expand
