Review of Parasitic Copepods Recorded in Fish from Turkey

Open access

Abstract

This review presents the occurrence of 62 parasitic copepod species from 72 different fish species (64 wild, two cultured, seven from aquarium) from Turkey.

The parasite species list is arranged by providing parasite species name, host fish, location of host fish capture and author, date of published record.

All parasites and their hosts are confirmed with the recent systematic accounts and full taxonomic account according to literature and internet database. Siphonostomatoida with 47 species and Caligidae with 12 species are the dominant order and family among parasitic copepoda with regard to species diversity, host distribution and location.
