    First record of the Southeast Asian walking catfish, <em>Clarias batrachus</em> (Pisces: Clariidae), from the island of Mauritius, south-western Indian Ocean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The presence of Southeast Asian walking catfish, Clarias batrachus, in Mauritian freshwater systems has been confirmed. Three female Clarias batrachus were caught in Rivière Sèche, close to the town of Phoenix, Mauritius (20°17′ S, 57°33′ E). This constitutes the first...
  2. First account of the metazoan parasite fauna of oilfish <em>Ruvettus pretiosus</em> Cocco, 1829 (Perciformes: Gempylidae) in South African waters

    First account of the metazoan parasite fauna of oilfish <em>Ruvettus pretiosus</em> Cocco, 1829 (Perciformes: Gempylidae) in South African waters

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Parasites are an important but neglected component of ecosystems that can be used as indicators of host biology and ecology. In the present study, the metazoan parasite assemblage of Ruvettus pretiosus, an understudied but widely distributed predatory gempylid, caught off...
  3. Community ecology of the metazoan parasites of snoek <em>Thyrsites atun</em> (Euphrasen, 1791) (Perciformes: Gempylidae) off South Africa

    Community ecology of the metazoan parasites of snoek <em>Thyrsites atun</em> (Euphrasen, 1791) (Perciformes: Gempylidae) off South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The parasite assemblage of snoek Thyrsites atun, a commercially important fish in the Benguela system, was examined over a one-year period. In all, 16 parasite taxa including eight new host records (Bolbosoma vasculosum, Caligus coryphaenae, Caligus dakari, Corynosoma australe, Hatschekia...
  4. Macroparasites of angelfish <em>Brama brama</em> (Bonnaterre, 1788) in the southern Benguela Current ecosystem

    Macroparasites of angelfish <em>Brama brama</em> (Bonnaterre, 1788) in the southern Benguela Current ecosystem

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The angelfish Brama brama is a mesopelagic species distributed circumglobally in temperate to warm-temperate waters, including continental-shelf-edge and upper-slope waters of the Benguela Current ecosystem. Little is known about the parasite assemblage of Benguela B. brama, with only three parasite...
