Influence of Triaenophorus nodulosus Pallas) (Cestoda, Pseudophyllidea) on young perch of the current by: 4. Tapeworms are flat, parasitic worms belonging to the taxonomic class Cestoidea. Tapeworms of various species infect both cold-blooded and warm-blooded animals. Many different species of tapeworms are known to infect various fish species at some stage of their life cycles. Most tapeworms have no common name. Thus far, high burdens of Triaenophorus crassus plerocercoids have been reported only in old age groups of coregonid and salmonid fishes. Here we show heavy infection with T. crassus in young whitefish Coregonus lavaretus in the ultra-oligotrophic and regulated Achensee in Tyrol, Austria. Prevalence of T. crassus on C. lavaretus was % in all age groups and abundance significantly Cited by: 1. Parasites were found on all examined parts of the fish with the skin being the most infested part of the host. The prevalence and the mean intensity (MI) of parasites on the host were relatively low.

(). Communities of metazoan parasites in open water fishes of Cold Lake, Alberta.   These parasites travel up the food chain as they mature: in the ocean, for instance, tapeworm eggs are slurped up by tiny crustaceans, which then get eaten by bigger creatures, like fish. The life cycles of species of Proteocephalus Weinland, (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) parasitizing fishes in the Palearctic Region are reviewed on the basis of literary data and personal experimental observations, with special attention being paid to the development within the intermediate and definitive hosts. Planktonic crustaceans, diaptomid or cyclopid copepods (Copepoda), serve as the. Several members of the cestode (tapeworm) family Diphyllobothriidae are known to infect humans. These pseudophyllidean cestodes have a scolex bearing bothria (grooves), instead of suckers as in the cyclophyllidean cestodes (the group including nearly all human-infecting species). All species associated with human diphyllobothriid infections have marine or aquatic life cycles and transmission .

Tapeworms (cestodes) of the genus Diphyllobothrium are widely distributed all around the world, some of which are agents of human diphyllobothriosis, one of the most important fish-borne zoonoses. Piscivorous birds and mammals (including humans) are definitive hosts and contract these parasites by eating raw or poorly cooked freshwater or. Kuperman, B.I.
