Abstract
The prevalence and intensity of infection by Otodistomum cestoides in the yellownose skate, Dipturus chilensis, in three coastal localities in southern Chile (Niebla: 38°50′S, 74°35′W; Bahía Mansa: 40°32′S, 73°45′W; and San Pedro: 40°53′S, 73°52′W) showed no significant differences in skates of different sex in a same or different locality. The differences among sizes of the skates of different sexes at the 3 localities, as well as the differences in frequencies in prey consumption, were not associated with the prevalence and intensity of the infection by O. cestoides.
