pathological and ecological host consequences of infection by an introduced fish parasite.the infection consequences of the introduced cestode fish parasite bothriocephalus acheilognathi were studied in a cohort of wild, young-of-the-year common carp cyprinus carpio that lacked co-evolution with the parasite. within the cohort, parasite prevalence was 42% and parasite burdens were up to 12% body weight. pathological changes within the intestinal tract of parasitized carp included distension of the gut wall, epithelial compression and degeneration, pressure necrosis and varied inflamm ...201122022606
parasites of fishes in the colorado river and selected tributaries in grand canyon, arizona.abstract as part of the endangered humpback chub (hbc) gila cypha adaptive management program, a parasite survey was conducted from 28 june - 17 july 2006 in 8 tributaries and 7 adjacent sections of the main stem colorado river (cor). in total 717 fish were caught, including 24 hbc, field necropsies yielded 19 parasite species, 5 of which (achtheres sp., kathlaniidae gen. sp., caryophyllaidae gen. sp., myxidium sp., and octomacrum sp.) are new records for the grand canyon. spearman's correlation ...201121793700
infection level of the asian tapeworm (bothriocephalus acheilognathi) in the cyprinid fish, schizothorax niger, from anchar lake, relative to season, sex, length and condition factor.various studies have shown that the asian fish tapeworm, bothriocephalus acheilognathi causes great economic loss in hatcheries, fish farms as well as in lakes. in order to understand the seasonal variation of infection in a nutrient-enriched lake, parasitological investigation was carried out in the indigenous cyprinid fish, schizothorax niger heckel 1838 from september, 2008 to august, 2009. overall, this study revealed definite seasonality of infection (pôçë<ôçë0.05), with greater infection i ...201121739312
the invasive fish tapeworm atractolytocestus huronensis (cestoda), a parasite of carp, colonises africa.biological invasions represent a serious threat for aquaculture because many of introduced parasites may negatively affect the health state of feral and cultured fish. in the present account, the invasive tapeworm atractolytocestus huronensis anthony, 1958 (cestoda: caryophyllidea), which was originally described from north america and has been introduced to europe including the british isles with its specific host, common carp (cyprinus carpio l.), is reported from africa for the first time. it ...201526091762
distribution of helminth parasites in intestines and their seasonal rate of infestation in three freshwater fishes of kashmir.the present study was undertaken to determine the incidence of helminth parasites in fishes with special reference to water quality parameters in dal lake and river jhelum and correlate the observations. water, fish, and parasite samples were collected during different seasons from various sites and processed. three fish species, namely, schizothorax niger heckel 1838, schizothorax esocinus heckel 1838, and schizothorax curvifrons heckel 1838, were recovered from these water bodies. the physicoc ...201627738522
endoparasites of some economically important food fishes of river jhelum, kashmir (india).during the present study endo-parasitic fauna of fish at different sites of river jhelum were analysed. four different species of endoparasites were recovered from schizothorax species which include adenoscolex kashmirensis mehra, 1930, bothriocephalus acheilognathi yamaguti, 1934, echinorhynchus sp., pomphorhynchus kashmirensis kaw, 1941, belong to phylum platyhelminths and phylum acanthocephala. prevalence and generation time were inversely proportional to each other. prevalence and mean abund ...201627605799
paralogues of nuclear ribosomal genes conceal phylogenetic signals within the invasive asian fish tapeworm lineage: evidence from next generation sequencing data.complete mitochondrial genomes and nuclear rrna operons of eight geographically distinct isolates of the asian fish tapeworm schyzocotyle acheilognathi (syn. bothriocephalus acheilognathi), representing the parasite's global diversity spanning four continents, were fully characterised using an illumina sequencing platform. this cestode species represents an extreme example of a highly invasive, globally distributed pathogen of veterinary importance with exceptionally low host specificity unseen ...201627155330
temporal changes in growth, condition and trophic niche in juvenile cyprinus carpio infected with a non-native host-parasite relationships, parasite prevalence and abundance can vary over time, potentially impacting how hosts are affected by infection. here, the pathology, growth, condition and diet of a juvenile cyprinus carpio cohort infected with the non-native cestode bothriocephalus acheilognathi was measured in october 2012 (end of their first summer of life), april 2013 (end of first winter) and october 2013 (end of second summer). pathology revealed consistent impacts, including severe compres ...201526394706
molecular phylogeny of the bothriocephalidea (cestoda): molecular data challenge morphological this study, the relationships of the cestode order bothriocephalidea, parasites of marine and freshwater bony fish, were assessed using multi-gene molecular phylogenetic analyses. the dataset included 59 species, covering approximately 70% of currently recognised genera, a sample of bothriocephalidean biodiversity gathered through an intense 15year effort. the order as currently circumscribed, while monophyletic, includes three non-monophyletic and one monophyletic families. bothriocephalidae ...201526183667
first record of the invasive asian fish tapeworm bothriocephalus acheilognathi in honduras, central america.this paper provides the first report of the invasive asian fish tapeworm, bothriocephalus acheilognathi yamaguti, 1934, in honduras. the cestode was found in profundulus portillorum (cyprinodontiformes: profundulidae), which represents a new host record, and which is a member of a genus faced with a variety of conservation challenges, now potentially complicated by the presence of this pathogenic cestode. nearly complete sequence data from the its-1 5.8s and its-2 regions corroborate the determi ...201525654444
first identification of eggs of the asian fish tapeworm bothriocephalus acheilognathi (cestoda: bothriocephalidea) in human stool.we report the first case of egg isolation of the asian fish tapeworm bothriocephalus acheilognathi (bothriocephalidea) from human stool. a male patient from saint laurent du maroni (french guiana) presenting abdominal pain was examined in france for the diagnosis of intestinal parasites. diphyllobothrium-like eggs were observed in his stool. however, molecular phylogenetic analyses based on sequences of rdna and coi genes showed that the eggs observed belong to a bothriocephalidean cestode b. ac ...201323422154
