Four gobiid species, Babka gymnotrachelus, Neogobius melanostomus, Neogobius fluviatilis, and Proterorhinus semilunaris, were parasitologically studied in different localities of the Dnieper and Vistula river basins. The highest number of parasitic species was found in N. fluviatilis (35 taxa). The parasite fauna of N. melanostomus, B. gymnotrachelus, and P. semilunaris consists of 23, 22, and 15 taxa, respectively. The species accumulation curves show stable accumulation of parasite species by… Expand
Parasites of round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, currently invading the Elbe River
Abstract The round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, is a Ponto-Caspian fish species currently found in many parts of Europe, including the North Sea riverine deltas. The objective of this study was toExpand
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
Environmental factors associated with the occurrence of the Ponto–Caspian gobies in a lowland river belonging to the central European invasion corridor
Ponto–Caspian goby fish belong to the most successful invaders in freshwater ecosystems of Europe and North America. So far, three alien goby species have been present in the Polish section of theExpand
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
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
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
Parasites of the invasive goby Proterorhinus semilunaris (pisces: Gobiidae) in Rybinsk Reservoir and checklist of the parasites of gobiids (genus Proterorhinus) in Eurasia
TLDR
The metazoan parasites of the invasive goby species Proterorhinus semilunaris and P. marmoratus in Eurasia were studied and Trematode metacercariae were the dominant parasites in all the studied samples. 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
Triple trouble? Invasive poeciliid fishes carry the introduced tilapia pathogen Gyrodactylus cichlidarum in the Mexican highlands.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that G. cichlidarum, a recognized pathogen which has been co-introduced globally with its cICHlid fish hosts for aquacultural purposes, is able to infect non-related poeciliid fishes inhabiting water bodies adjacent to tilapia farms, thereby potentially increasing its ability to disperse between farms and different river basins. Expand
First report of the parasitic copepod Lernaea cyprinacea (Copepoda: Lernaeidae) on gobioid fishes (Teleostei: Gobonellidae) in southern Europe
TLDR
Although both gobioid fishes as hosts of L. cyprinacea are not optimal hosts, they have the potential to carry and to transmit the parasite in freshwater habitats, e.g. by unintentional introduction with fry of other fish species. Expand

The colonization of the invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus by parasites in new localities in the southwestern Baltic Sea
TLDR
The round goby Neogobius melanostomus is a bottom-dwelling fish native for the Ponto-Caspian basin, which started to colonize the Baltic Sea since 1991, and the processes of colonization have the same tendency as in the Gulf of Gdańsk. Expand
Four-year monitoring of parasite communities in gobiid fishes of the south-western Baltic
TLDR
The composition of parasite communities was predominantly determined by the ways of life of the host as well as of the parasite species, another important factor is the population density of intermediate hosts. Expand
The Parasite Fauna of the Gobiid Fish (Actinopterygii, Gobiidae) in the Sukhyi Lyman, Black Sea
TLDR
Seventeen species of parasites are registered in the gobiids in the Sukhyi Lyman, Black Sea, with the marine tubenose goby Proterorhinus marmoratus having the richest parasite fauna, and the grass goby Zosterisessor ophiocephalus has the fewest number of parasite species. 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
Four-year monitoring of parasite communities in gobiid fishes of the south-western Baltic
TLDR
The parasite infracommunity of five goby species from the south-western Baltic was investigated during spring, summer and autumn of the years 1997–2000; most intensity of infestation values peaked in summer and were lowest in autumn; only a few exceptions were found in spring or autumn. Expand
Spread of alien (non-indigenous) fish species Neogobius melanostomus in the Gulf of Gdansk (south Baltic)
TLDR
The present state, size and condition of the round goby population in the Gulf of Gdansk led us to predict a continual spread of this species into new regions of the Baltic. Expand
Communities of metazoan parasites of two fishes of the Proterorhinus genus (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae)
TLDR
The differences between the parasite component communities of two Proterorhinus gobies are explained by different quality of habitats and available intermediate hosts. Expand
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
Gyrodactylus proterorhini Ergens, 1967 (Monogenoidea, Gyrodactylidae) in gobiids from the Vistula River—the first record of the parasite in Poland
TLDR
The presented study supports the hypothesis of progressive introduction of the parasite with gobiids to the colonized areas and in relation to the fish size and sampling season. Expand
Genetic and biogeographic relationships of the racer goby Neogobius gymnotrachelus (Gobiidae: Teleostei) from introduced and native Eurasian locations
TLDR
This study is the first to analyse the population genetic and biogeographic relationships of the racer goby, establishing a baseline to aid interpretation of its future spread patterns and likely donor-recipient population relationships. Expand
