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. The parasites of this fish species in the southwestern Baltic region are studied for the first time. The round goby in the SW Baltic Sea was infected with 12 parasite species: 1 species of Microsporidia, 1 species of Monogenea, 1 of Cestoda, 3 species of Trematoda, 3 species of Nematoda, 2 of Acanthocephala, and 1 species of Bivalvia… 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
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
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. Expand
Parasitization of invasive gobiids in the eastern part of the Central trans-European corridor of invasion of Ponto-Caspian hydrobionts
TLDR
The species accumulation curves show stable accumulation of parasite species by all four fish hosts along the studied part of the corridor, from the Dnieper Estuary to the Vistula River delta, and reveals that the studied gobies lose the parasites common in the host native range and accept new parasites from the colonized area. Expand
The parasites of the invasive Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii (Fam. Odontobutidae), with the first report of Nippotaenia mogurndae in Ukraine
TLDR
The low similarity among the different localities and the low parasite richness, that suggest that the parasite fauna of the Chinese sleeper in Ukraine is in transition, are noted. 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
The Gyrodactylus (Monogenea, Gyrodactylidae) parasite fauna of freshwater sand gobies (Teleostei, Gobioidei) in their centre of endemism, with description of seven new species
TLDR
From five sand goby species, the first parasites are reported, describing seven new Gyrodactylus species, and some new flatworm species display unique morphological features, which reflect their hosts' endemism in the Balkans. Expand
Differences in diet compositions and feeding strategies of invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus and native black goby Gobius niger in the Western Baltic Sea
TLDR
The dietary overlap between the two goby species was low and suggests that the absence of black goby in Travemünde cannot be referred to competition for food with round goby. Expand
Enigmatic decline of a common fish parasite (Diplostomum spp.) in the St. Lawrence River: Evidence for a dilution effect induced by the invasive round goby
TLDR
It is suggested that gobies play a role in the eyefluke collapse, as Diplostomum spp. Expand

TLDR
The round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) is a non-indigenous species in the Baltic Sea, introduced to its waters (the Gulf of Gdańsk) from the Black, Azov, and Caspian Seas, and the parasitic fauna of this fish is not yet complete. Expand

TLDR
Three parasite species found in the gobies are endemic to North America and were most likely obtained locally. Expand
Parasites of the round goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1811), an invasive species in the Polish fauna of the Vistula Lagoon ecosystem
TLDR
The round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, was introduced into southern Baltic waters (including the Vistula Lagoon) from the Black Sea and Sea of Azov in the early 1990s and the parasites found were all local species, already reported from Poland. Expand
Expansion, Feeding and Parasites of the Round Goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1811), a recent invader in the Curonian Lagoon, Lithuania
TLDR
The quantitative food content analysis in the northern part of the Curonian Lagoon suggests that during their first year of life N. melanostomus juveniles rely on chironomid larvae, ostracods and amphipods, while beginning with the second year oflife, mussels, zebra mussels in particular, constitute over a half of their diet.

TLDR
No parasites from the Black Sea have become establishe d in this system with the original goby colonizers, and all species infecting gobies have been reported from other fish species in Lake Huron and Lake Erie. 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

TLDR
The theory of empty niches propagated by some parasitologists is critically discussed and substituted by the assumption of variable niche widths for the main causes of the infestation of fish hosts may be their ages and the availability of parasites due to the presence of intermediate hosts. Expand
