The study of the beryciform Anoplogaster cornuta from the Irminger Sea (north Atlantic) revealed the presence of the anisakid nematode Anisakis paggiae inside the body cavity, representing a new host and locality record. This deep-sea fish was infected with Anisakis larvae at a prevalence of 57.1% and a mean intensity of 2.2, with no correlation between the fish standard length and the number of accumulated A. paggiae. Kogiid whales (Kogia breviceps, K. sima), the typical final hosts of this… 

Influence of confluent marine currents in an ecotonal region of the South-West Atlantic on the distribution of larval anisakids (Nematoda: Anisakidae)

Infection levels and diversity of anisakid nematodes in blackspot seabream, Pagellus bogaraveo, from Portuguese waters

The anisakid nematode communities were relatively similar in mainland waters but very distinct in both the Azores and Madeira islands, suggesting the existence of at least three different stocks of P. bogaraveo in the northeast Atlantic.

Morphological and genetic identification of Anisakis paggiae (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in dwarf sperm whale Kogia sima from Brazilian waters.

Integrative taxonomic analysis allowed the identification of A. paggiae for the first time in Brazilian waters, providing new data about their geographical distribution and presenting the first SEM images of this species.

The approach strongly indicates the existence of species-specific distribution patterns of Anisakis spp.



The role of pelagic swarm fish (Myctophidae: Teleostei) in the oceanic life cycle of Anisakis sibling species at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Central Atlantic

Comparison of the host range among the anisakis sibling species suggests that the A. simplex complex has low host specificity, infecting toothed and baleen whales on their extensive oceanic migrations, contrasts the Anisakis physeteris complex that is restricted to toothing whales of the families Kogiidae and Physeteridae.

Ecology of Pseudoterranova decipiens (Krabbe, 1878) (Nematoda: Anisakidae) from Antarctic waters

P. decipiens is not a rare but, rather a well-established parasite of the Antarctic fauna, which demonstrates the ability of this cosmopolitan species to complete its life cycle even under conditions of subzero temperatures.

The Anisakis simplex complex off the South Shetland Islands (Antarctica): endemic populations versus introduction through migratory hosts.

It is concluded that both Anisakis nema- tode species were introduced from outside the Antarctic, and they are at their most southern range in the Southern Ocean, and an earlier molecular record of A. simplex C from the elephant seal Mirounga leonina may have detected an accidental case of infection.

Molecular genotyping of Anisakis Dujardin, 1845 (Nematoda: Ascaridoidea: Anisakidae) larvae from marine fish of Balinese and Javanese waters, Indonesia

Anisakis typica infection of fish intermediate hosts in the northern Bali coast is suggested to be dependent on the large dolphin population (nematode final hosts) in the waters off Lovina Beach (North Bali).

The diet of pygmy sperm whales, Kogia breviceps, stranded in New Zealand: implications for conservation

The stomach contents of 27 pygmy sperm whales, Kogia breviceps, stranded on New Zealand beaches between 1991 and 2003 are reported, and the diet was found to include fish and crustaceans, but is comprised primarily of cephalopods.

Anisakis nascettii n. sp. (Nematoda: Anisakidae) from beaked whales of the southern hemisphere: morphological description, genetic relationships between congeners and ecological data

Morphological and morphological data indicate that the new species belongs to the ‘ziphidarum-group’; however, it is genetically very distinct from A. ziphidareum, and the parallelism between the clade formed by these two anisakine taxa further supports the hypothesis of host–parasite co-evolutionary relationships.

Evidence for a new species of Anisakis Dujardin, 1845: morphological description and genetic relationships between congeners (Nematoda: Anisakidae)

A low genetic identity was detected at allozyme level between the eight Anisakis species and was supported by differences in adult and larval morphology, as well as with respect to their main definitive hosts.

Anisakis infestation in marine fish and cephalopods from Galician waters: an updated perspective

Demographic values for larval nematodes are discussed in relation to host preferences and the ecological niche of both anisakid species at the sampling area and primary recommendations are also expressed concerning the effects of current fishing and aquaculture practices on the Anisakis problem.

Molecular systematics, phylogeny and ecology of anisakid nematodes of the genus Anisakis Dujardin, 1845: an update.

Preliminary data for reconstruction of a possible co-evolutionary scenario between cetacean hosts and their Anisakis endoparasites suggests that cospeciation and host-switching events may have accompanied the evolution of this group of parasites.
