Ratnabir Singha, M. Shomorendra and Devashish Kar Abstract:
Three freshwater fishes were examined for the present study. The percentage of infection was 62.5% and 45.45% for females and males, respectively in Notopterus notopterus, 31.25% for females and 17.46% for males of Channa punctata and 10% and 8.33% for females and males of Heteropneustes fossilis respectively. The result showed that females were more parasitized than males. It was found that the degree of infection increases with increasing length of Notopterus notopterus. In Channa punctata, the degree of infection was high in an intermediate length group. The degree of infection in Heteropneustes fossilis was higher in lower length group. However, different trends of parasite infection were observed in different sex and length groups of host species during different seasons of the yearPages: 125-127 | 799 Views 10 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
