Monogenean parasite, Dactylogyrus intermedius is endemic ectoparasite in Asia, Central Europe, Middle East and North America (Paperna 1964), cause serious economic damage in aquaculture industry in these regions.
1993) and trichlorphon (Prost and Studnicka 1966) in the control of Dactylogyrus is well known.
In our continuous efforts to develop sustainable control against Dactylogyrus infestation in fish aquaculture, attempts were made to identify plants showing promising anthelmintic properties, such as osthol and isopimpinellin from Fructus Cnidii and two lignan compounds, arctigenin and arctiin from Fructus Arctii were identified (Wang et al.
Both compounds can be chosen as lead compounds for the development of new antiparasitic agents against Dactylogyrus.
Control of the invasion of parasites of Dactylogyrus and Gyrodactylus.
Adaptation of Dactylogyrus extensus (Muller and Van, 1932) to ecological conditions of artificial ponds in Israel.
Praziquantel effective against Monogenea (Dactylogyrus vastator, Dactylogyrus extensus, Diplozoon paradoxum).
The intent of this study is to perform immune analyses via white blood cell counts from the peripheral blood and spleen of Green Swordtails, Xiphophorus helleri, following an immune initiation, along with parasite level counts of Dactylogyrus
intermedius as a means of measuring male fitness.
