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
Metazoan parasite fauna of the round goby Neogobius melanostomus Pallas, 1811 (Perciformes: Gobiidae) collected from the Black Sea coast at Sinop, Turkey
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
The colonization of the invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus by parasites in new localities in the southwestern Baltic Sea
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
Metazoa parasites of the invasive round goby Apollonia melanostoma (Neogobius melanostomus) (Pallas) (Gobiidae: Osteichthyes) in the Gulf of Gdańsk, Baltic Sea, Poland: a comparison with the Black Sea
The known metazoa parasite fauna of the invasive round goby Apollonia melanostoma (formerly Neogobius melanostomus) consists of 12 species and includes species that are atypical for this species in its native habitat. 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
Parasite fauna of native and non-native populations of Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) (Gobiidae) in the longitudinal profile of the Danube River
Parasite fauna of round goby Neogobius melanostomus in the Danube River was investigated in both the native range and the non-native range of its distribution during 2005 and 2006 to identify possible changes in parasite community associated with the introduction of a host into the new environment. Expand
Parasites of Apollonia melanostoma (Pallas 1814) and Neogobius kessleri (Guenther 1861) (Osteichthyes, Gobiidae) from the Danube River in Austria.
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
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
Parasites of the round goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1811), an invasive species in the Polish fauna of the Vistula Lagoon ecosystem
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
Metazoan parasites of Neogobius fishes in the Slovak section of the River Danube
Metazoan parasites were investigated in three non-native fishes collected from the former and current main channel of the River Danube and from the River Hron, Slovakia in November 2003, finding all parasite species found are common parasites in the Middle Danube basin. Expand
