 Some
freshwater fish can be infected with
parasites.
 Parasites reduce nutritional value of fish and
prevent their reproduction, growth and feeding.
 The distribution and presence of parasites in
water are very important knowledge in
economy.
 In this study, acanthocephalans of freshwater
fish caught from Erzurum were investigated.
 The aim of the study was determined the role
of acanthocephalans in this system.
The fish of Karasu River
Porsuk (Aras) River
Tortum Lake
Çıldır Lake
Kuzgun Dam Lake
were examined in this study.
During the study a total of 170 fish of 13 species
were investigated for the presence of
acanthocephalans.

Conclusion;
 Acanthocephalus salmonis was observed in
Salmo trutta
 Neoechinorhynchus zabensis in Capoeta
trutta
 Pomphorhynchus spindletruncatus in the
other 9 fish species.
 These acanthocephalan species are first
records for the parasite fauna of Turkey.
