Abstract

This study was carried out between January 2009 and December 2013. A total of 958 specimens of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) from the most significant and larger cyprinid aquaculture facilities in Republic of Macedonia were examined for parasitological investigations. Fish louse, Argulus foliaceus was found on fins and skin in 57 specimens of common carp from four different cyprinid aquaculture facilities. Total, the prevalence with Argulus foliaceus in Cyprinus carpio was 5,950%, while the mean intensity was 7,807. By seasons, prevalence with Argulus foliaceus was as following: spring - 1,587%; summer - 5,026% and autumn - 2,028%, while mean intensity: spring - 5,722; summer - 16,474 and autumn - 5,391. This parasite was not found in winter season. Our findings of fish louse Argulus foliaceus in common carp (Cyprinus carpio) are first recorded for Republic of Macedonia. At the same time, common carp represent new host for Argulus foliaceus in Macedonian waters.
