The larval development of the nematode Contracaecum rudolphii (Rudolphi, 1819), a common parasite of the proventriculus of cormorants, was experimentally studied. Within the eggs cultivated in freshwater under laboratory temperatures of 20-22 degrees C, the developing larva undergoes two moults on days 4-5, attaining the third larval stage. Most of the ensheathed third-stage larvae, 291-457 microm long, hatch spontaneously from egg shells on days 5-6. Experiments have indicated that hatched… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Location and development of larvae of Contracaecum rudolphii Hartwich, 1964 (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in experimentally infected asps Leuciscus aspius (Linnaeus, 1758) (Pisces: Cyprinidae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in the experimentally infected asps, the intensity and prevalence of infection as well as the location of the larvae in a fish depended on the type of invasive material applied.
Morphology and Molecular Studies of Contracaecum Larvae (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in Some Fish species from Sulaimani Province, Kurdistan Region, Iraq
TLDR
The genetic characterization of the Contracaecum larvae in the present study is available in the GenBank database and they were deposited in GenBank and their accession numbers were demonstrated.
Differential survival of 3rd stage larvae of Contracaecum rudolphii type B infecting common bream (Abramis brama) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio)
TLDR
The present study has shown that most Contracaecum rudolphii larvae survive in bream (Abramis brama) whereas the majority of the nematode larvae die in Cyprinus carpio (from Lake Hévíz, directly connected to Lake Balaton).
Studies on ascaridid, oxyurid and enoplid nematodes (Nematoda) from fishes of the Okavango River, Botswana.
TLDR
Based on light and scanning electron microscopical studies, eight species (five adult and three larval) of nematodes belonging to the Ascaridida, Oxyurida and Enoplida were collected from fishes of the Okavango River, Botswana, and a new species Cithariniella longicaudata is described for the first time.
In vitro infection experiments with eggs of the nematode Contracaecum rudolphii Hartwich, 1964 (sensu lato) targeting aquatic insect larvae (Odonata: Coenagrionidae and Libellulidae; Trichoptera: Integripalpia) as possible intermediate hosts
TLDR
High prevalence and intensity of infection associated with a low mortality of aquatic insect larvae suggests that they may serve as intermediate hosts for C. rudolphii and constitute a major reservoir of C. Rudolphii larvae in aquatic habitats.
Larvae of Contracaecum sp. (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in the threatened freshwater fish Sandelia capensis (Anabantidae) in South Africa.
TLDR
Although the nematode seems to be a common parasite of S. capensis in the locality under study, the low intensity of infection recorded and the generally known low pathogenicity of Contracaecum larvae in fish indicate that this parasite probably does not represent a danger to the local population of this threatened fish species.
Genetic identification and insights into the ecology of Contracaecum rudolphii A and C. rudolphii B (Nematoda: Anisakidae) from cormorants and fish of aquatic ecosystems of Central Italy
TLDR
A differential feeding behavior of wintering cormorants, the ecology of the infected fish species, and abiotic factors related to early stages of the parasites are supposed to maintain the distinctiveness of the two parasite species’ life cycles in the two different aquatic ecosystems.
The Influence of Contracaecum larvae (Nematoda, Anisakidae) Parasitism on the Population of Prussian carp (Carassius gibelio) in Lake Sakadaš, Croatia
Contracaecum larvae are geographically widely distributed, utilizing many animal species as hosts; and fish represent an important paratenic host in their life cycle. Their presence in Prussian carp

Morphogenesis of Contracaecum rudolphii (Nematoda: Ascaridoidea), a parasite of fish-eating birds, in its copepod precursor and fish intermediate hosts
TLDR
The newly-emerged, free-living (and presumably second-stage) larva is described in detail, as are larvae from experimentally-infected copepods (Tigriopus sp.), amphipods (Gammarus sp.), and fish (Lebistes reticulatus, Fundulus heteroclitus) .
Experimental infection of Carassius auratus (L., 1758) with the second stage larvae of the nematode Contracaecum rudolphii Hartwich, 1964.
TLDR
Susceptibility of the goldfish to infection with the newly hatched second stage larvae of Contracaecum rudolphii was investigated under laboratory condition and the autopsied goldfish showed the nematodes in their intestine lumen.
First record of Contracaecum spp. (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in fish-eating birds from Zimbabwe.
TLDR
Endoparasites of fish-eating birds, Phalacrocorax africanus, P. carbo, Anhinga melanogaster and Ardea cinerea collected from Lake Chivero near Harare, Zimbabwe, were investigated and it was revealed that Contracaecum rudolphii infected both cormorant species and darters.
Development to third-stage larvae occurs in the eggs of Anisakis simplex and Pseudotetranova decipiens (Nematoda, Ascaridoidea, Anisakidae)
TLDR
Two moults occur during larval development in the eggs of Anisakis simplex and Pseudoterranova decipiens from the North Atlantic, and it is the third-stage larva that emerges from the egg of both species and not the second- stage larva as previously believed.
In vitro development of the fish parasite Hysterothylacium aduncum from the third larval stage recovered from a host to the third larval stage hatched from the egg.
TLDR
The in vitro development of third-stage larvae (L3) of Hysterothylacium aduncum isolated from blue whiting Micromesistius poutassou, to the hatching of L3 from eggs obtained from H.Aduncum worms grown in GLIT medium may help to study the biology of this and other anisakids.
The life cycle ofContracaecum osculatum (Rudolphi, 1802) sensu stricto (Nematoda, Ascaridoidea, Anisakidae) in view of experimental infections
TLDR
In the liver and mesentery of plaice the third-stage larvae developed via copepod paratenic hosts to infectivity, showing that the life cycle may be completed with an optional paratetic invertebrate host and only one intermediate fish host.
Molecular Identification of Two Strains of Third-Stage Larvae of Contracaecum rudolphii Sensu Lato (Nematoda: Anisakidae) From Fish in Poland
TLDR
The results, although based on a restricted number of larvae, suggest that the life cycles of both genotypes can be completed in the Polish region and that at least one of them, C. rudolphii B, can develop both in fresh and brackish water.
Infection by Contracaecum rudolphii (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in the Neotropic cormorant Phalacrocorax brasilianus, and fishes from the estuary of the Valdivia river, Chile
TLDR
The prevalences of infection in birds were similar during seasons, whereas mean intensity and percentages of adult gravid females were higher in spring and summer, respectively, and for fishes no seasonal differences were found in infection.
Nematode parasites of the digestive tract in Neotropic cormorant chicks (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) from the River Cruces Ramsar site in southern Chile
TLDR
The neotropic cormorant breeding colony of the Rio Cruces Nature Sanctuary and Ramsar site was surveyed for nematode parasites in southern Chile and it was found that most parasites were located in the stomach and C. rudolphii was the dominant species.
Contracaecum rudolphii Hartwich (Nematoda, Anisakidae) from the Neotropical Cormorant, Phalacrocorax brasilianus (Gmelin) (Aves, Phalacrocoracidae) in southern Brazil
TLDR
The morphology of the labia/interlabia, the distribution pattern of the caudal papillae in males examined under scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and the tips of the spicules allowed determination of the species as Contracaecum rudolphii Hartwich, 1964 sensu lato (s. l.).
