The infections of four fish species, Trematomus newnesi, T. bernacchii, Lindber− gichthys nudifrons and Harpagifer antarcticus with parasitic worms, in the coastal zone off the Vernadsky Station (Argentine Islands, West Antarctica) are described. Data on infec− tions are compared with previous results from Admiralty Bay at the South Shetland Islands. Indices of infection are for each host-parasite relationship. In total, 16 taxa of parasites were recorded: 6 digeneans, 3 larval cestodes, 4… 

Tables from this paper

Helminths of antarctic rockcod Notothenia coriiceps (Perciformes, Nototheniidae) from the akademik Vernadsky station area (Argentine Islands, West Antarctica): new data on the parasite community
TLDR
The authors' studies revealed significant changes in the structure of the parasite community of N. coriiceps during the last decade.
Occurrence of endoparasitic worms in dusky notothen, Trematomus newnesi [Actinopterygii Nototheniidae], at Adelie Land, Antarctica
TLDR
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.
Acanthocephalans from Marine Fishes from Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
The Patagonian shelf of Argentina represents a new locality record for A. johni and C. bullosum and is a starting point for understanding the diversity of marine acanthocephalans in Patagonians waters.
Taxonomy and ecology of metazoan parasites of otariids from Patagonia, Argentina : adult and infective stages
TLDR
Sea lions and furs seals from northern Patagonia harbour the intestinal helminth communities that could be predicted for otariids, i.e. the combination of species of the genera Corynosoma, Diphyllobothrium, Pseudoterranova, Contracaecum and, in pups, Uncinaria.
Transmission of Corynosoma australe (Acanthocephala: Polymorphidae) from fishes to South American sea lions Otaria flavescens in Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
Data on the frequency of occurrence and number of other fish and cephalopod species in stomach contents strongly suggest that only R. brasiliensis may play a prominent role in the transmission of C. australe to the most important definitive host in the area, i.e. the South American sea lion Otaria flavescens Shaw.
Larval ascaridoid nematodes (Anisakidae) in fish from the South Shetland Islands (Southern Ocean)
TLDR
The parameters of infection of Notothenia coriiceps and Lepidonotothen nudifrons by Pseudoterranova decipiens were decreasing within the 30 years period.
New data on the occurrence of Acanthocephala in Antarctic Amphipoda
TLDR
In total, 6401 amphipods, including 5707 Cheirimedon femoratus, caught at the Galindez Island, were examined for the presence of cystacanths and advanced acanthellae of Acanthocephala, and the representative of the genus Metacanthocephalus was found in the intermediate host for the first time.
New data on gastrointestinal helminths in shags (Phalacrocorax verrucosus) at Kerguelen Archipelago
TLDR
The analysis of stomach contents from 41 live Kerguelen Shag individuals revealed infection by Contracaecum nematodes, and the proportion of infected birds differed between colonies, possibly in relation to differential exposure to infected fish hosts.
Digenean trematodes of Seriolella porosa (Pisces, Centrolophidae) in San Matías Gulf, Argentina
TLDR
Results from this study show that Silver warehou plays a key role as a final host of a significant number of digeneans in the ecosystem.
Comparison of the parasite community of two notothens, Notothenia rossii and N. coriiceps (Pisces: Nototheniidae), from King George Island, Antarctica
TLDR
It is concluded that the two congeneric and sympatric fish species had highly similar parasite communities, which indicates that they use resources in a similar way, thus allowing them to become parasitized with the same parasitic species and in the same abundances.

Aspects of ecology and biogeography of Acanthocephala in antarctic seabirds
TLDR
Host-parasite coevolution appears to have had an important influence on the species composition of the acanthocephalan fauna of seabirds and marine mammals in Antarctica.
The effects of periodic eutrophication on parasitism and stock identification of Trematomus bernacchii (Pisces: Nototheniidae) in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica.
TLDR
It is believed that the differences in the prevalences of infection between the east and west sides suggest that at least the benthic, adult fish do not readily move from one side of the sound to the other.
Cestodes of the Antarctic fishes
TLDR
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.
Preliminary results on Digenea found in fishes in the coastal waters of Terra Nova Bay, Antarctica.
TLDR
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.
