Abstract

Parasitological studies of wild freshwater fish in Iberia are needed to provide baseline data for management strategies, but the conservation status of many species means application of non-lethal sampling procedures is mandatory. A survey of Iberian redfin barbel (Barbus haasi) from five Mediterranean streams in north-eastern of Spain using mucus scrapings revealed the presence of Trichodina acuta, T. fultoni and Gyrodactylus spp. with prevalences of 35-60%, 8%, 2-50% and densities of 54-197, 42-89, 2-50 parasites/mm2 on fish skin, respectively. Biometrics of the trichodinid species are provided, and we discuss the potential application of trichodinids as eutrophication bioindicators in these rivers.
