In this study, cultured common carp ( Cyprinus carpio ) and Oreochromis niloticus were collected from 3 private fish farms in Egypt and investigated for crustacean parasites from January 2013 to December 2013. A total of 600 fishes were investigated. Out of the 300 C. carpio, 132 were infected and of the 300 O. niloticus , 178. The parasites found in C. carpio were: Lernaea cyprinacea and Argulus japonicus . The parasites found in O. niloticus were: Ergasilus spp. Lamproglena angusta, L. monodi. The parasites were investigated according to the place they were found in the host, prevalence and intensity of infections in the fish. Also the clinical signs, Post-mortum as well as the histopathological lesions of the parasitized fishes were estimated.
