Abstract:
In this research, the parasitic infections of some fish species were studied and identified. During the study, six fish species have been recorded in Enne Dam Lake, namely; Alburnus alburnus (bleak), Carassius carassius (Crucian carp), Carassius auratus (golden carp), Barbus plebejus escherichi (barb), Leuscius cephalus (chub) and Nemacheilus sp. (loach). From all this fish, Biacetabulum appendiculatum Szidat, 1937 was recorded only on barb. This cestode (tapeworm) species that is B. appendiculatum Szidat, 1937, synonim B. siaboldi Szidat, 1937 is known very rare as a fish parasites in the World. That was only one species known in America, in Cyprinids and Catastomidae and one species in Russia and in present study only one specimens was found on Barbus plebejus escherichi, that is very important for the parasitic fauna of Turkey and the world.
