A list is presented of metazoan parasites that infect seven gobiid fishes (the toad goby Mesogobius batrachocephalus, monkey goby Neogobius fluviatilis, racer goby N. gymnotrachelus, bighead goby N. kessleri, round goby N. melanostomus, ratan goby N. ratan, and syrman goby N. syrman) from the Dniester Estuary (Black Sea). Infections by thirteen species of metazoa parasites, including four trematodes, three cestodes, five nematodes, and one crustacean species, were observed in the gobies sampled… Expand
Parasitization of monkey goby, Neogobius fluviatilis (Pallas, 1814) (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae), at localities with different salinity levels
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
Metazoan Parasite Faunas of Three Gobiid Species (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) Inhabiting the Lower Kızılırmak Delta in Samsun: A Comparative Study.
This is the first study on metazoan parasite faunas of N. marmoratus in Turkey, and the maximum parasite diversity was found in N. fluviatilis, which was infected with 9 parasite species, while Pr. Expand
Non-indigenous benthic fishes as new hosts for Bucephalus polymorphus Baer, 1827 (Digenea: Bucephalidae) in the Vistula River basin, Poland
Two Ponto-Caspian gobiid species, the racer goby and monkey goby, the introduced fishes in the Vistula River, Poland, were found being infected with metacercariae of Bucephalus polymorphus, and the encysted larvae were located in muscles and fins of these fish. Expand
First report of the parasitic copepod Lernaea cyprinacea (Copepoda: Lernaeidae) on gobioid fishes (Teleostei: Gobonellidae) in southern Europe
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
Infection rates and prevalence of metazoan parasites of the non-native round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) in the Baltic Sea
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
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
Trichodinid Parasites (Protozoa: Ciliophora: Peritrichida) of Invasive Gobiid Fish Inhabiting The Lower Kizilirmak Delta in Samsun, Turkey
This paper is the first report on the trichodinid fauna on the monkey goby, the tubenose goby and the marbled goby in Turkey. Expand
Distribution of Trematodes Cryptokotyle (Trematoda, Heterophyidae), in Fish of the Family Gobiidae in the Estuary Waters and the Black Sea in Southern Ukraine
Abstract The article describes occurrence and distribution of Cryptocotyle trematodes in fish in the waters of the Dnipro-Buh estuary and the Black Sea in Mykolaiv and Odesa Region. Study wasExpand
Metazoan Parasites of Introduced Round and Tubenose Gobies in the Great Lakes: Support for the “Enemy Release Hypothesis”
ABSTRACT Recent invasion theory has hypothesized that newly established exotic species may initially be free of their native parasites, augmenting their population success. Others have hypothesizedExpand
Hydrology and parasites: What divides the fish community of the lower Dniester and Dniester estuary into three?
Abstract Estuarine fish communities are the common object of ecological studies that aim to infer the environmental changes occurring in estuarine environments and connected catchments. However, theExpand


Parasitology meets ecology on its own terms: Margolis et al. revisited.
Suggestions for various terms used by parasitologists when describing the ecology of parasites are provided in an attempt to foster consistent use and to make terms used in parasite ecology easier to interpret for those who study free-living organisms. Expand
