Abstract

In order to explore the parasite fauna of endemic fishes from Lake Ohrid, sampling of fish material was carried out by seasons, during the year 2012. During that period, 203 specimens of fish were caught, which belong to 2 species: Ohrid Trout - Salmo letnica and Ohrid Belvica - Salmo ohridanus. Parasitological examinations of the fish from the Macedonian part of Lake Ohrid were made on 78 specimens of Ohrid`s trout (Salmo letnica Karaman, 1924), of which 59 fishes (75,64 %) were infected. We determined the presence of 4 parasite species in Ohrid`s trout (Salmo letnica): Eubothrium crassum, Cyathocephalus truncatus, Proteocephalus neglectus and Pomphorhynchus laevis. Parasitological examinations were made on 125 specimens of the Ohrid's belvica (Salmo ohridanus Steindachner 1892), of which 68 fishes (54,40 %) were infected. We determined the presence of 6 parasite species in Ohrid`s belvica (Salmo ochridanus): Nicolla testiobliqua, Eubothrium salvelini, Metechinorhynchus truttae, Metechinorhynchus salmonis, Acanthocephalus anguillae and Pomphorhynchus bosniacus.
