Description The formation and development of metazoan parasite community of chub fry (Leuciscus cephalus) was followed in the period from July 2000 to May 2001. Chub fry (N=190) were sampled monthly from the River Morava. Altogether 27 parasite species have been recorded. The most common parasites in the investigated locality were representatives of the class Monogenea, especially viviparous gyrodactylids. First, juvenile fish 29 mm in size were found to be infected with ectoparasites and metacercariae. On the opposite, host fish larger then 50 mm were colonised with intestinal parasites.
