Abstract : External and internal parasites occur in all species of freshwater and saltwater fishes. In nature, a balance is usually established between parasites and their fish hosts. In intensive fish culture operations, however, parasites can cause significant mortalities. External single-celled protozoan parasites are among the most serious pathogens of cultured freshwater fish. Some of the most common of these are described here.
