Seasonal surveys were conducted at the Vaal Dam between April 2000 and January 2001.

The cestodes were identified as either Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934 or "other cestode spp.". The majority (99.8%) of the cestodes found in both yellowfish species were identified as B. acheilognathi… CONTINUE READING
