ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to assess the prevalence of helminth parasites in Cyprinuscarpioat Chilya, Fish Hatchery, Thatta, Sindh from February 2019 to January 2020. A total of 107 samples of Cyprinuscarpio were tested during the research and helminths were found in 17 out of 107. Various helminths groups were identified including trematode and acanthocephalan. Other helminths groups, such as cestodes and nematodes were not noted. These helminths infected the gut of Cyprinuscarpio including trematode and acanthocephalan. No additional organs were found to be infected with helminths parasites. Helminths prevalence were documented as 41% in September, 40% in August, 36% in October, 33% in June, September (30.76%) and April (25%). During September and October, the helminthes were most abundant, with no infections documented in January, February, March,  July, November, or December. Helminths were found in this study throughout specific months of the year.
