New data on the occurrence of fish endoparasitic worms off Adelie Land, Antarctica

  title={New data on the occurrence of fish endoparasitic worms off Adelie Land, Antarctica},
  author={Krzysztof Zdzitowiecki},
In total, 18 species and larval forms of endoparasitic worms were found in 19 newly examined notothenioid fishes of three species, Trematomus hansom, Notothenia coriiceps and Chionodraco hamatus, caught off Adelie Land. One digenean species, Neolepidapedon trema- tomi, was recorded in this area for the first time. A total list of endoparasitic worms prepared by Zdzitowiecki etal. (1998) increased from 20 to 21 species and larval forms and concerns 11 deter­ mined and one ^determined species of…

Occurrence of endoparasitic worms in dusky notothen, Trematomus newnesi [Actinopterygii Nototheniidae], at Adelie Land, Antarctica
Larval cestodes were the dominant parasites, whereas acanthocephalans were relatively rare, and five species and larval forms were recorded also in fish caught in the Davis Sea.
Contribution to the knowledge of the parasitic fauna of fish off Adelie Land, Antarctica
Parasites in larval stage using fish as intermediate or paratenic hosts were more numerous than species maturing in fish, whereas the digenean, Genolinea bowersi, was the most numerous maturing parasite.
Description of a New Opecoelid Trematode Species from Nototheniid Fish in the Beagle Channel (Sub-Antarctica)
Abstract: Macvicaria magellanica n. sp. (Digenea: Opecoelidae) is the third representative of this genus occurring in fish in the Magellanic sub-region of sub-Antarctica and the first one found in
Changes in acanthocephalan infection of the Antarctic fish Notothenia coriiceps in Admiralty Bay, King George Island, over 29 years
Echinorhynchids were more numerous than polymorphids in 2007/08 and the reverse was true in 1978/79, which is dependent mainly upon the decreased infections with C. hamanni, C. pseudohamanni and C. johnstoni.
A review of the genus Helicometra Odhner, 1902 (Digenea: Opecoelidae: Plagioporinae) with a key to species including Helicometra overstreeti n. sp. from the cusk-eel Luciobrotula corethromycter Cohen, 1964 (Ophidiiformes: Ophidiidae) from the Gulf of Mexico
This study describes a new species of Helicometra from the cusk-eel Luciobrotula corethromycter Cohen, 1964 collected from 1,280 m depth in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, and it represents the first report of a parasite from the genus LuciOBrotula Smith and Radcliffe in Radcliffe, 1913.
Parasitic infection by larval helminths in Antarctic fishes: pathological changes and impact on the host body condition index.
Histologically, all fish showed varying severity of chronic inflammation associated with larval forms of helminths, and C. hamatus showed a strong negative correlation between BCI and parasite burden.
Changes in digenean infection of the Antarctic fish Notothenia coriiceps in Admiralty Bay, King George Island, over three decades
It is demonstrated that infections with almost all digenean species were less strong in 2007/08 than three decades earlier, in 1978/79.
Helminths of antarctic rockcod Notothenia coriiceps (Perciformes, Nototheniidae) from the akademik Vernadsky station area (Argentine Islands, West Antarctica): new data on the parasite community
The authors' studies revealed significant changes in the structure of the parasite community of N. coriiceps during the last decade.

According to Duhamel et al. (2014) fish comprise the most species-rich group of Antarctic vertebrates with 47 families and 374 species; four families of which, including 14 species, being
Cestodes of the Antarctic fishes
The paper comprises the review of all known species of cestodes parasitizing the Antarctic and Subantarctic fishes along with synonyms and keys based on morphologi− cal features as well as undetermined plerocercoids of Diphyllobothriidae.

P. decipiens is not a rare but, rather a well-established parasite of the Antarctic fauna, which demonstrates the ability of this cosmopolitan species to complete its life cycle even under conditions of subzero temperatures.
Preliminary results on Digenea found in fishes in the coastal waters of Terra Nova Bay, Antarctica.
The total number of species known from the Ross Sea increased from 9 to 12, which is smaller than those of other Antarctic areas, such as Western Antarctic and Weddell Sea where more extensive investigations were carried out to date.
