Author(s): Mehmet Zeynel Elbay and Mehmet Oğuz Öztürk

Abstract:
In this study, Gyrodactylus infestation of on Squalius recurvirostris Özuluğ and Freyhof, 2011 from Düzağaç-Akdeğirmen Dam Lake were investigated between February 2012 and March 2013. One gyrodactylid parasite species was determined on fins of the host fish specimens: Gyrodactylus scardiniensis Glaser, 1974. The parasite species is a new record for the host fish species. Thus, a new locality was added to the global geographical spread of the mentioned parasite species in direction of the present study. General infection prevalence value of the parasite was recorded as 10.6% and the mean intensity value was recorded as 2.6±1.7. In addition, occurrence of the parasites was evaluated using seasonal data, length size and sex distribution of the host fish: G. scardiniensis caused infection in the host fish in all seasons, except spring. It was found on only first two age groups of the host fishes. And occurrence of the parasite was found in approximately value on both sex groups of host fishes, male and female.
