Fourth stage larvae of Eustrongylides exciscus were recovered from the abdominal cavity, musculature and ovaries of Channa punctatus (prevalence 24%, intensity 2 to 18 per fish).
In total, the following 13 metazoan parasite species were found: 2 monogenea (Gyrodactylus proterorhini and Gyrodactylus sp.) 6 digenean metacercariae (Tylodelphys clavata, Diplostomum spathaceum, Apatemon gracilis, Posthodiplostomum sp., Ascocotyle sp., and Echinostoma sp.), 1 cestoda (Bothriocephalus acheilognathi), 3 nematodes (Spiroxys contortus, Eustrongylides excisus, and Contraceacum rudolphii), and 1 arthropoda Ergasilus (sieboldi).

Some fishes presented more than one parasite species, being found six species of nematodes, Brevimulticaecum sp.; Eustrongylides sp; Contracaecum type I; Contracaecum type II; Contracaecum type III; a few specimens were identified only as larvae of Anisakidae, it was not possible to identify the gender (Table 1).
