Article title

Prevalence and Diversity of Cestode Parasites of Freshwater Fishes of Genus Channa Scopoli, 1777

Title variants
Languages of publication
Study was conducted to investigate prevalence and diversity of Piscean cestode parasites of freshwater fishes of four species of the genus Channa Scopoli, 1777 viz. Channa straitus (Bloch,1793), Channa punctatus (Bloch, 1793), Channa marulius (F. Hamilton, 1822) and Channa gachua (F. Hamilton, 1822) in and around Nanded district, M.S. India during March, 2012 to August, 2014 by applying statistical approach. Five cestode genera Senga (Dollfus, 1934), Polyoncobothrium (Diesing, 1854), Gangesia (Woodland, 1924), Proteocephalus (Weinland, 1858) and Silurotaenia (Nybein, 1942) were recorded during this investigation. High prevalence were recorded during Summer followed by winter where as prevalence was low in monsoon. High prevalence was reported due to infection of Senga sp., as compared to other cestode infection. Prevalence of these Cestode parasites and severity of infection vary considerably depending on environmental conditions such as humidity, temperature, rainfall, vegetation and management practices.
