Abstract Specimens of the acanthocephalan, Echinorhynchus gadi , were taken from the gut of the winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus , caught by commercial fishermen off Point Judith, Rhode Island. In November, 18 of 32 fish examined contained parasites, and in March, 91 of 232. The worms were larger and more numerous in the fall. When first isolated, E. gadi consumed oxygen at 9.65 μmoles/g-hr at 25 C, and during 10 days of survival outside the host (at 5 C) the rate diminished to… Expand
