Fish Parasitic Diseases

The majority of the fish parasites which cause disease in fish include protozoal parasites.  Typically, these parasites are present in large numbers either on the surface of the fish, within the gills, or both. When they are present in the gills, they cause problems with respiration and death will commonly occur when additional stressors are present in the aquatic environment.  

Protozoal parasites on the skin, fins or scales only, (i.e., not affecting the gills) usually do not result in death, unless they are accompanied by a secondary bacterial infection. These include species found on external surfaces and species found in specific organs. Most protozoa have direct life cycles, but the myxosporidia require an invertebrate intermediate host.
