  • ish parasites are ecologically important because they shape community and ecosystem structure by influencing trophic interactions, host fitness, and food webs. We surveyed fish parasitofauna from Lake Taal and provided initial quantitative and qualitative measures of parasite burden. This was then correlated with fish size, as a preliminary attempt to relate parasitism with fish overall fitness. A total of 60 specimens of
