Abstract

The gill myxosporean parasites of 2 euryhaline tilapias from Lake Nokoue, Sarotherodon melanotheron melanotheron (Ruppel, 1853) and Tilapia zillii (Gervais, 1852), were investigated from October 1987 to October 1989. A totalof 391 S, m. melanotheron and 222 T. zillii were examined. Both of the fish species studied were infected by 3 host-specific myxosporean parasites for which prevalence greatly varied during our investigations. The 2 most common ones were Myxobolus sp. and M. zillii, which were located in the branchial filament. No significant fish sex effect was found for these 6 different myxosporean parasites. As seasonal pattern was clearly demonstrated for M. zillii while a host size effect was found for M. dossoui. However, further investigations of these myxosporean infections are necessary to determinethe real effect of these parasites on their host, as host fecundity and survival was not assessed.
