  title={Incidence of Black Spot Disease in Fishes in Cedar Fork Creek, Ohio},
  author={T. Berra and R. Au},
A total of 4175 fishes belonging to 29 taxa in 6 families was examined for black spot disease. Of that total, 89% were infected with one or more metacercariae of the strigeid fluke, Uvulifer ambloplitis. Rhinichthys atratulus, Semotilus atromaculatus and Campostoma anomalum had the highest incidence of infection and the greatest number of individual parasites. Other pool-dwelling minnows such as Notropis cornutus and Pimephales notatus were also heavily infected, whereas Noiropis photogenus… Expand
