Abstract


Fishes are useful as well as harmful to human being. They have considerable economic importance. All fish carry pathogens and parasites. Today there is very less work on parasites which are occurring in fishes of chankapur dam. The present status of our knowledge on helminthes parasites of fishes in the chankapur dam is reviewed in the lite of the result of a recent investigation on fishes caught from chankapur dam waters.
Diversity of digenetic trematodes, nematodes and cestodes in fishes of the chankapur dam are presented together with a discussion on certain aspects of the relationships between these helminthes with their respective fish hosts. Study of diversity of helminthes parasites in fresh water fishes of chankapur dams carried from period of one year. i.e. June 2019 to May 2020. So, in present investigation attempt has been made to evaluate the diversity of parasite from fresh water fishes.


Keywords
