Abstract This paper reviews the work published over the past decade on the use of parasites as biological tags in population studies of marine fish, mammals and invertebrates. Fish hosts are considered in taxonomic and ecological groups as follows: demersal, anadromous, small pelagic, large pelagic and elasmobranch. Most studies were carried out on demersal fish, particularly on members of the genera Merluccius (hake), Sebastes (rockfish) and on Atlantic cod Gadus morhua L., but Pacific salmonids and small pelagic fish of the genus Trachurus are also well-represented. A current multidisciplinary study of the population biology of horse mackerel Trachurus trachurus in European waters, which includes the use of parasites as tags, is described. Two studies recognize the potential for using parasites as tags for cetaceans but, in spite of the considerable potential for this approach in population studies of elasmobranchs, no original study has been carried out on this group for over ten years. Studies of parasites as tags for marine invertebrates have concentrated on squid. Recent trends in the use of parasites as biological tags for marine hosts are discussed.
