Abstract

During the parasitological investigations on Chondrostoma nasus from Lake Ohrid (Macedonia), 6 parasite species were found: Myxobolus exiguus, Paradiplozoon homoion homoion, Caryophyllaeus laticeps, Bothriocephalus opsariichthydis, Ligula intestinalis (plerocercoid) and Lamproglena pulchella. The total prevalence of infestation is 70,83% and the highest prevalence is of Paradiplozoon homoion homoion (found in 50,0% of nases). The average intensity of infestation is 3,65, and the highest level is that of Myxobolus exiguus and Paradiplozoon homoion homoion (4,0). Findings of Myxobolus exiguus, Bothriocephalus opsariichthydis and Lamproglena pulchella represent first record for Chondrostoma nasus from Lake Ohrid. Among the parasite species found out in chub from the Lake Ohrid, the greatest pathological influence is associated with Paradiplozoon homoion homoion, Caryophyllaeus laticeps, Bothriocephalus opsariichthydis, Ligula intestinalis (plerocercoid) and Lamproglena pulchella.
