Forty-three freshwater fishes (Heteropneustus fossilis 11, Mystus vittatus 16 and Channa striatus 16) were collected from various freshwater ponds in the vicinity of Lahore and brought to the lab. All fishes were examined for the presence of internal helminth parasites in the digestive tract. The study revealed that all (100%) H. fossilis were infected with nematodes, Procamallanus heteropneustus, only 6 (37.5%) M. vittatus were found infected with nematodes, Rhabdochona magna and among C…

Survey of Parasites Infesting the Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus Linnaeus, 1758) from Lake Alau, Maiduguri, Nigeria
TLDR
There was a significant difference between incidence of infestation and standard length and body weight of Oreochromis niloticus while there was no significant difference (p> 0.05)between incidence of parasitism and total length of the fishes.
Helminthes and protozoan of farmed pirarucu (Arapaima gigas) in eastern Amazon and host-parasite relationship
TLDR
This study is the first to record the occurrence of P. macrorhynchus in A. gigas farmed in Amazon, and the number of I. multifiliis was positively correlated with the weight and total length of hosts, while the intensity of monogenoideans was negatively correlated with body weight andtotal length.
Helminthes and protozoan of farmed pirarucu ( Arapaima gigas ) in eastern Amazon and host-parasite relationship
TLDR
This study is the first to record the occurrence of P. macrorhynchus in A. gigas farmed in Amazon, and the number of I. multifiliis was positively correlated with the weight and total length of hosts, while the intensity of monogenoideans was negatively correlated with body weight andtotal length.
Prevalence and Diversity of Internal Cestode Parasites Infected Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and African Catfish (Clarias gariepinus) in Farmers Fresh Water Ponds in Kenya
TLDR
The study concluded that the C. gariepinus are more   attacked by internal cestode parasites compared O. niloticus, and suggest that farmers to keep more species with higher tolerance with parasites.
Nematode Parasites in a Freshwater Fish Glossogobius giuris(Hamilton-Buchanan, 1822) at Lower Manair Dam, KarimnagarDt. Andhra Pradesh, India.
TLDR
The results indicate that the parasitic mean intensity3.14 and relative density 1.40 is quite high in January and high prevalence55 in October, and the prevalence 10.00 and mean intensity 1.50 are less in April and Relative density 0.47 in June.

TLDR
Among the fish parasites depicted some are widely distributed while some others are endemic.
Evaluation of ecto and endo parasitic fauna of Schizothorax plagiostomus inhabitants of river Swat, Khyber PakhtunKhwa, Pakistan.
TLDR
The present research study was conducted with aims to investigate the ecto and endo parasitic fauna of S. plagiostomus (snow trout) in River Swat and found 61 out of 96 fishes were found infected by helminth parasites.
STUDY OF MORPHOLOGY, PREVALENCE AND MEAN INTENSITY OF MONOGENEANS INFECTING POND REARED Pangasianodon hypophthalmus (STRIPED CATFISH) IN BESUT, TERENGGANU SARAH SALEHAH AND FAIZAH SHAROM
TLDR
The monogenean parasite was identified as Thaparocleidus sp based on the characteristics of the morphology and morphometrics of the parasite, which did not differ significantly from the previous descriptions of the same species discovered in other geographic locations.
Bio-Systematic Studies on Cestode Genus Senga (Dollfus, 1934) (Ptychobothridae, Luhe, 1902) from Mastecembelus armatus (Lacepede, 1800) with Description of a New Species
TLDR
Worm comes closer to all known species of this genus in general topography of organs but differs having triangular scolex, narrow anteriorly and broad posteriorly.
