Abstract

Eight out of the eleven indigenous fish species of Prespa are endemic, i.e. they exist only in the Prespa region and in no other place on earth. One of these endemic fish species is Prespa roach (Rutilus prespensis). The parasitological examination from the Macedonian part of the Lake Prespa showed that 175 specimens of Prespa roach fishes were infested of the 183 examined (95.63%). In our case study the presence of 14 parasite species was established: Myxobolus cyprini, Myxobolus dispar, Chilodonella piscicola, Dactylogyrus sphyrna, Dactylogyrus erhardovae, Paradiplozoon zeller, Nicolla testiobliquum, Posthodiplostomum cuticola (larva), Caryophyllaeus laticeps, Ligula intestinalis (plerocerkoid), Philometra ovata, Contracaecum microcephalum (larva), Metechinorhynchus truttae and Ergasilus sieboldi. Individually, by the parasite species, the highest prevalence was with Posthodiplostomum cuticola(larva) (84.70%), Ligula intestinalis (plerocerkoid) (77.04%) and Dactylogyrus sphyrna (38.80%). The lowest one was with Caryophyllaeus laticeps and Philometra ovata (0.55%). In our case study the parasite Dactylogyrus erhardovae is recorded for the first time in the ichthyoparasitofauna of Lake Prespa and North Macedonia.
