Parasite fauna of round goby Neogobius melanostomus in the Danube River was investigated in both the native range (two sites in Bulgarian stretch of the Danube) and the non-native range of its distribution (Croatian, Slovak and Austrian stretches) during 2005 and 2006. The aim was to identify possible changes in parasite community associated with the introduction of a host into the new environment. A total of 29 metazoan parasite species were found to parasitize round goby in the Danube River… Expand

Infection rates and prevalence of metazoan parasites of the non-native round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) in the Baltic Sea
TLDR
The round goby has not retained parasites from its area of origin, but instead has been successively colonized by native generalist parasites, and overall parasite richness is still quite low around the Baltic compared to the native areas. Expand
Parasite diversity and microsatellite variability in native and introduced populations of four Neogobius species (Gobiidae).
TLDR
Both native and introduced populations of N. kessleri and N. melanostomus had comparable parasite species richness and microsatellite diversity, possibly due to multiple and/or continual migration/introduction of new individuals and the acquisition of local parasites. Expand
Non-native gobies facilitate the transmission of Bucephalus polymorphus (Trematoda)
TLDR
Parasite establishment and adult size in definitive hosts was equivalent among the second intermediate host species, despite a lower size of metacercariae recovered from round gobies, but development in the definitive host of flukes recovered from gobies was reduced, showing higher mortality, delayed maturity and lower egg production, in comparison with parasites from native hosts. Expand
Parasitization of monkey goby, Neogobius fluviatilis (Pallas, 1814) (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae), at localities with different salinity levels
TLDR
It is indicated that freshwater populations of monkey goby host richer and more abundant parasite communities than those inhabiting brackish waters with (more or less) stable salinity. Expand
The parasite community of round goby Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) newly introduced into the upper Elbe
TLDR
Only the acanthocephalan Pomphorhynchus tereticollis was found in high numbers and occurred in both seasons, which is typical for Ponto-Caspian gobiids introduced far from their host range, and complies with the predictions of the ‘enemy release hypothesis’. Expand
The invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus and tubenose goby Proterorhinus semilunaris : two introduction routes into Belgium
TLDR
The authors' data provides evidence that tubenose goby entered Belgium with active dispersal and the round goby, however, was likely introduced with ballast water. Expand
A minimalist macroparasite diversity in the round goby of the Upper Rhine reduced to an exotic acanthocephalan lineage
TLDR
The exotic status of this Ponto-Caspian lineage in the Upper Rhine, putatively disseminated by the round goby along its invasion corridor, underlines the role that parasites may play in its successful invasion across Western Europe. Expand
The Parasite Fauna of the Round Goby Neogobius melanostomus (Perciformes, Gobiidae) in the Kuybyshev Reservoir (Middle Volga)
Abstract The fauna of multicellular parasites of the round goby Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) was studied in three reaches of the Kuybyshev Reservoir. Ten species and forms of parasitesExpand
Impact of the invasion from Nile tilapia on natives Cichlidae species in tributary of Amazonas River , Brazil
This study investigated for the first time impact caused by the invasion of Oreochromis niloticus on populations of native Cichlidae species from Igarapé Fortaleza hydrographic basin, a tributary ofExpand
Invasive Ponto-Caspian Amphipods and Fish Increase the Distribution Range of the Acanthocephalan Pomphorhynchus tereticollis in the River Rhine
TLDR
Insight is given into a potential parasite-host system that consists mainly of invasive species, such as the Ponto-Caspian fish and amphipods in the Rhine, which discusses prospective distribution and migration pathways of non-indigenous vertebrate (round goby) and invertebrates (amphipods) under special consideration of parasite dispersal.

Condition status and parasite infection of Neogobius kessleri and N. melanostomus (Gobiidae) in their native and non-native area of distribution of the Danube River
TLDR
Differences in success of the introduction and establishment in new areas between the two fish species may be associated with a relatively low parasite infection rate and a higher gonadosomatic index in non-native populations of N. kessleri. Expand
The distribution and abundance of the Neogobius fishes in their native range (Bulgaria) with notes on the non-native range in the Danube River
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis of disjunct spreading of these species and suggest newly established populations of N. kessleri and N. melanostomus were significantly larger at sites of non-native distribution compared to native sites. Expand
New records of non-indigenous gobies (Neogobius spp.) in the Austrian Danube
Summary Beginning in the early 1990s, species of the genus Neogobius rapidly expanded their native range from the Black Sea and the lower reaches of the River Danube upstream to include the middleExpand
The recent distribution and abundance of non-native Neogobius fishes in the Slovak section of the River Danube
TLDR
The distributions of invasive Neogobius species were investi- gated in the Slovak section of the River Danube from Bratislava downstream to the village of Chl'aba during October 2004, and monkey goby had a most limited distribution. Expand
Parasites of the recently established round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) and tubenose goby (Proterorhinus marmoratus) (Cottidae) from the St. Clair River and Lake St. Clair, Michigan, USA.
TLDR
Three parasite species found in the gobies are endemic to North America and were most likely obtained locally. Expand
The interaction between an introduced fish host and local parasite fauna: Neogobius kessleri in the middle Danube River
TLDR
The importance of gobies as suitable hosts for local non-native parasite species (Anguillicoloides crassus, Anodonta woodina, Hydrozetes lacustris) is discussed and the role of introduced N. kessleri was used as intermediate host for most of the recorded parasites. Expand
Metazoan parasite fauna of the round goby Neogobius melanostomus Pallas, 1811 (Perciformes: Gobiidae) collected from the Black Sea coast at Sinop, Turkey
TLDR
Round gobies (Neogobius melanostomus) were collected from a small stream connected to the Black Sea coast of Sinop, Turkey and examined for metazoan parasites and infection prevalence and mean intensity values were determined and discussed. Expand

TLDR
During this survey metacercariae of the Holarctic digenean Bucephalus polymorphus, encysted in the skin and fins, were recorded for the first time in Austria. Expand
