Abstract

This report describes the pathological effects Lamellodiscus spp. on the gills of the sharpsnout seabream, Diplodus puntazzo and the efficacy of formalin as a treatment. Two species of Lamellodiscus were identified: Lamellodiscus ergensi and L. bidens. The attachment of parasites caused destruction, fusion and hyperplasia of the gill filaments. Formalin was effective in removing the worms when applied as a bath treatment at a concentration of 200mg/ml for one hour.
