We collected 396 Gobius bucchichii, Steindachner, 1870 (Teleostei, Gobiidae) in and around the marine reserve of Cerbère-Banyuls, in the southeast of France, between March and July 1994. Five species of adult parasites were found: one acanthocephalan, Acanthocephaloides propinquus Dujardin, 1845 (Acanthocephala, Arhythmacanthidae); one nematode, Cucullanus sp. (Nematoda, Cucullanidae); and three species of digenetic trematodes, Helicometra sp. (Digenea, Opeccelidae), Derogenes sp. (Digenea, Hemiuridae) and Deretrema scorpaenicola Bartoli, 1990 (Digenea, Zoogonidae). Fishes collected in a protected area were on average, larger, older, had a higher percentage of regenerated scales, and harbored more parasites.
