The eyes of 273 Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) taken from Charr Lake, the Ikarut River, and Hebron Fiord in northern Labrador were examined for diplostomula. All anadromous charr taken from the Ikarut river and Hebron Fiord were uninfected. The resident fish from Charr Lake were parasitized with large numbers of diplostomula and intensity of infection increased with age and length. Infections of up to 2,852 diplostomula in one fish are the highest recorded. Such infections did not appear to affect the vision of the charr.
