Abstract One of the fish species with the highest potential for aquaculture is the sharpsnout seabream, Diplodus puntazzo Cetti. Among other aspects, the development of new fish cultures requires studies of potential pathogens that may compromise survival of the fish in captivity. Moreover, both cultured and wild fish can act as sources or reservoirs of pathogens which may negatively affect other well-established cultures. We have studied the parasite fauna of the wild sharpsnout seabream, and… 
Transmission of parasites from introduced tilapias: a new threat to endemic Malagasy ichthyofauna
TLDR
native endemic parasite fauna even seem to be outcompeted by introduced parasites, which cross the barriers of host specificity in Madagascar, which may represent a serious risk to endemic freshwater fish and parasites in Madagascar.
The discovery of the male of Caligus ligusticus Brian, 1906 (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on the sand steenbras Lithognathus mormyrus (L.) in the eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
A species of parasitic copepod originally based on females collected from off Genova, Italy, is redescribed based on newly collected specimens of both sexes based on new material collected from the inner opercular surface of the sand steenbras Lithognathus mormyrus caught in eastern Mediterranean waters off the Turkish coast.
COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF SPECIATION AND ZOOGEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION FOR LAMELLODISCUS (MONOGENEA: DIPLECTANIDAE) USING 18S rRNA
TLDR
Reported species of different clades were not well connected either geographically or cladistically but secondary struc ture proved that they evolved into different individual s/species thousand years ago and maintained the same pattern of origin.
Diplectanids from Mycteroperca spp. (Epinephelidae) in the Mediterranean Sea: Redescriptions of six species from material collected off Tunisia and Libya, proposal for the 'Pseudorhabdosynochus riouxi group’, and a taxonomic key
Diplectanid monogeneans are gill parasites that can infect fish in huge numbers and thus become harmful, especially in maricultured fish. It is therefore useful to have taxonomic tools, such as keys,
Morphological and attachment changes of Lamellodiscus theroni (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) during its post-larval development on fish.
TLDR
The main aim of this work was to study the developmental changes of Lamellodiscus theroni under experimental conditions, with special attention to the gradual variations in attachment strategies and the pathological implications.

Community structure of digenean parasites of sparid and labrid fishes of the Mediterranean sea: a new approach.
TLDR
The results showed that potential microhabitats were vacant in the 2 host families studied revealing a lack of niche saturation because either there was little inter- and/or intraspecific competition or there were enough available space and resources within the host.
Diseases of White Sea Bream (Diplodus sargus L.) Reared in Experimental and Commercial Conditions in Greece
TLDR
The study showed that D. sargus reared under captive conditions is prone to several parasitic and bacterial infections, amongst them the most important in terms of pathology were the myxosporeans (Myxobolus sp. and Kudoa sp).
The Effect of Seasonality on the Health and Growth of a Newly Recorded Myxobolus Species Infecting Cultured Sharp Snout Seabream (Diplodus puntazzo C.)
TLDR
The study included data collected from the largest farm in southern Greece where a high rate of mortality due to myxosporean infection occurred, and the Myxobolus sp.

TLDR
Variations in infection support the hypotheses that the main factor determining the infection of S. chrysophrii was temperature and that the parasite life cycle could be influenced by fish size and fish age.
