Twenty-one specimens of pike-perch (Sander lucioperca) were caught in the Danube-Tisa-Danube Canal in the city area of Novi Sad for parasitological examination. The presence of nematodes in the muscles was revealed in three fish. The parasites were identified to belong to the species Eustrongylides excisus, for which the pike-perch is a paratenic host. This finding represents the first determination of the larvae in the pike-perch in Serbia. The pike-perch is infected by ingestion of benthos- or plankton-eating fishes, the second intermediate hosts harbouring the fourth-stage nematode larvae. E. excisus is pathogenic to humans, who may be infected by consuming raw or undercooked fish.

, Eustrongylidesexcisus and Caspiobdella caspica . Only 2 of these were found in the present study (Tokpan & Rakhimov 2010). Diplostomum has been descriped in the Asp from Norway ( Sterud & Appleby, 1996 ). We were not able to identify the parasites we recovered from Rutilus rutilus caspicus species level so it is not possible to discuss further, Anisakis schupakovi, Eustrongylus excisus and Diplostomum spp have previously been found in Silurus glanis in the Caspian region or in Turkey ( Pazooki & Masoumian, 2012 ) ( Daghigh Roohi et al., 2014 ; Çolak, 2013 ).
