Abstract

Parasitism By Gussevia Asota In Gills Of Juveniles Of Astronotus ocellatus Cultured In The Peruvian Amazon

The present study aims to evaluate the monogenean infestation in Astronotus ocellatus bred in a fish farm in the Peruvian Amazon. Fifty individuals of the species A. ocellatus were collected between July and August 2011 from a semi-intensive fish farm, located in the northeast of the State of Loreto, Peru. This study identified a high infestation in gills by monogenean specie of Gussevia asota in a cultivation of A. ocellatus. The prevalence was 100%, with mortality of all fish. The mean intensity and mean abundance of the parasite were 189.8 of parasites per indi-vidual. This is the first report of infestation high by G. asota in juveniles of A. ocellatus cul-tured from the Peruvian Amazon.
