Abstract
Examination of 150 fish samples belonging to three families were collected from Mediterranean sea, Egypt and examined for larval Trypanorhynch Cestode infection from September 2011 till February 2012. Sixty three (42%) of the investigated fish were parasitized with different metacestode species belonging to Lacistorhynchidae and Tentaculariidae . All Trypanorhynch species were isolated from the muscles and abdominal cavities. The detected Callitetrarhynchus gracilis (Pintner, 1931) showed the highest prevalence (30%) and maximum intensity (37). Results revealed that, 46%; 44% and 36% of the examined fish species Epinephelus gigas ; Sciaena umbra and Scomber scomber were infected respectively and were considered as new hosts records for the detected parasites. The collected C. gracilis and its host muscles ( Epinephelus gigas ) were analyzed for some heavy metals( Cu, Pb, and Cd) using atomic absorption spectrophotometer, the results indicated a significance higher concentration of the heavy metals in the parasite compared with its fish host. The present study has concluded for the 1st time that; the Trypanorhynch metacestode C. gracilis could be used as bioindicator of aquatic heavy metal pollution and adds further evidence to the usefulness of parasites in monitoring environmental impacts.
