During the collection of bluefish ovaries for another study, the nematode Philometra saltatrix Ramachandran, 1973 was detected in the ovaries of adult bluefish.
Philometra saltatrix was identified in the gonads of female fish ranging in size from 363 to 815 mm (FL) in both NC and NY samples.
In the middle of July 2002, 100% of bluefish examined were infected with live Philometra saltatrix, whereas in 2003 the highest percentage of fish sampled that were infected was 91% (Fig.
Although not the target of this study, we also detected the presence of Philometra saltatrix in the pericardial cavity of one adult male bluefish collected in NC and three adult males in NY.
