Description The aim of the research was to improve the understanding of parasite communities in a native fish species the Aegean chub Squalius fellowesii (Gunther, 1868) in of Doganbaba Creek (Yesilova-Burdur, Turkey). Lamproglena compacta (Copepoda: Lernaeidae) and Paradiplozoon bliccae (Monogenea: Diplozoidae) were recorded on the extremity of the filaments. Histopathological examination in areas of parasite attachment revealed inflammation, hyperaemia and haemorrhages in the gills and slight hyperplasia. Prevalence, intensity and seasonality of infection, length classes, ages and sex compositions of infected populations were monitored and compared with other studies.
