Abstract

A total of 192 specimens of common carp (Cyprinus carpio), 38 specimens of grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella), as well as 26 specimens of bighead carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis), from the most significant and larger cyprinid aquaculture facilities in Macedonia, including fish farms and reservoirs,were examined for parasitological investigations. This study was carried out by seasons. Protozoa Ichthyophthirius multifiliisis the largest known parasitic protozoan found on fishes. In our study, this protozoa was found in all seasons, except in winter. Total, prevalence with I.multifiliisin cyprinid fishes from aquaculture facilities in Macedonia, by seasons, was as following: spring -0.79 %; summer -2.99 % and autumn -0.44 %, while mean intensity was: spring -12.56; summer -26.70 and autumn -50.00. The records of I. multifiliisin grass carp and bighead carp in the present study is considered as the first records in Macedonia.Also, these two fish species is regarded as new hostsfor I. multifiliisin Macedonian waters.
