- ... White grub flukes, Posthodiplostomum minimum centrarchi (Trematoda), and hookworms Pomphorhynchus bulbocolli (Acanthocephala) are common internal parasites for many North American freshwater fishes. P. minimum are found as cysts in internal organ tissues, while P. bulbocolli are found as sexually mature adults in gastrointestinal (GI) tracts. Stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen (δ¹³C and δ¹⁵N) ...

- ... Simultaneous presence of metals and parasites in fish might lead to potential risks to human health. Parasites might influence metal accumulation and disturb detoxification in fish, thereby affecting biomarkers of fish responses as well as metal biomagnification in humans. It is, therefore, of importance to take into account parasite infection when investigating metal accumulation in fish. However ...
