    The Genus Argulus (Crustacea: Branchiura) of the United States [Cressey, Roger F.] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. The Genus Argulus (Crustacea: Branchiura) of the United StatesAuthor: Roger F. Cressey.   Fish lice (Argulus spp.) are obligate ectoparasites, which contrary to most aquatic parasites, retain the ability to swim freely throughout the whole of their life. In fish farms, they can quickly increase in numbers and without effective control cause argulosis, which results in the reduced growth and survival of their fish hosts. The morphology of Argulus spp, including their Cited by: 6.

    Argulus. Argulus on Stickleback Photo by Michal Grabowski - Wikipedia. Introduction. Argulus are parasites which attach themselves to fish and then bore in to the fish's flesh and feed off the fish's blood. Obviously this weakens the fish and a heavy infestation will quickly kill the fish. Argulus are quite rare in the aquarium and an infection. Species of Argulus (Branchiura Thorell, ) are common ectoparasites of freshwater, estuarine, and marine fishes. Argulid identification and taxonomy is often confusing because many species are reported to parasitize multiple host species, have similar morphological characters, and come from various salinity regimes.

Branchiuran fish lice are all external parasites of fishes (for example Figure 11), with the exception of Dolops ranarum that uses freshwater amphibians as hosts.

Three genera, Chonopeltis, Dolops and Dipteropeltis, are exclusively freshwater in distribution, while the largest genus, Argulus, occurs on both marine and freshwater fishes.

The ectoparasitic are frequently found on various species of freshwater fishes. Species of genus Argulus are common and important parasites of freshwater fishes. These species are temporary parasites of fish and cannot survive without a host for long period.

Many studies reported the transmission of Argulus species through freshwater fishes : A.R. Radkhah. June The specimens were lost but one of them was identified as the argulid branchiuran Argulus matuii Sikama,based on its morphological characters recorded on a photograph of the whole body.

Many of the species are parasitic on marine fishes, and about 15 spp. are found on freshwater fishes (1, 2).It is sometimes possible to see the parasites with a naked eye because these parasites are 5–10 mm in size and consist of a head, thorax, and by: Two specimens of a freshwater fish parasite Argulus japonicus Thiele, were found to be mixed in a sample of over specimens of a brackish-water.

However, there is a group of obligate aquatic ectoparasites of the subclass Branchiura, which also retain the ability to swim freely at the adult stage.
