Abstract

A survey of Gyrodactylus elegans on goldfish indicated that the temperature had an effect on the number of these parasites on the body but little or no effect on the number found on the gills. As the water became warmer the number of body parasites increased. The pectoral, pelvic and anal fins had more parasites per unit of area than the larger dorsal and caudal fins.
