Description In our study, parasites from all groups (Nematoda, Trematoda, Cestoda, Acanthocephala, Monogenea and Crustacea) were recovered from fins, gills, internal organs and tissues of six species of Antarctic fishes from family Nototheniidae [Trematomus bernacchii Boulenger, 1902; T. eulepidotus Regan, 1914; T. newnesi Boulenger, 1902; T. pennellii Regan, 1914, Gobionotothen gibberifrons (Lönnberg, 1905); Notothenia coriiceps Richardson, 1844]. Fishes were collected up to 120m deep, during Austral summer seasons in 2012 and 2013 from the Prince Gustav Channel, in the coastal part of the James Ross Island (Antarctica).
