A list is presented of metazoan parasites that infect seven gobiid fishes (the toad goby Mesogobius batrachocephalus, monkey goby Neogobius fluviatilis, racer goby N. gymnotrachelus, bighead goby N. kessleri, round goby N. melanostomus, ratan goby N. ratan, and syrman goby N. syrman) from the Dniester Estuary (Black Sea). Infections by thirteen species of metazoa parasites, including four trematodes, three cestodes, five nematodes, and one crustacean species, were observed in the gobies sampled from the estuary. The data complements the existing list of parasite species that inhabit the fishes of this aquatic basin. Water salinity varies in the estuary, which impacts parasite distribution. Brackish-water parasites prevailed in the Dniester Estuary, while the marine trematode C. lingua occurred only in the southern part.
