Condition factor of Astyanax intermedias Eigenmann, 1908 (Osteichthyes, Characidae) parasitised by Paracymothoa astyanaxi Lemos de Castro, 1955 (Crustacea, Cymothoidae) in the Grande river, Serra do Mar State Park--Santa Virginia Unit, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
In the present study, all fishes were parasitised by E.
Humans are principal hosts of the bed bug, though other warm-bodied animals such as domestic pets can be parasitised.
The possible effects of pathogens (parasites) on their hosts are difficult to assess or quantify, especially in fish under natural conditions, where the difficulty lies in the definition of the control group that can compare individuals parasitised (Yamada et al., 2008).
The aim of this study is to characterise and compare the length-weight relationship and condition factor by sex and seasonally of Astyanax intermedius parasitised and not parasitised by Paracymothoa astyanaxi.
intermedius parasitised and not were analysed with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test (Vanzolini, 1993), as well as the numerical distribution in classes of total length of females and males of the parasite Paracymothoa astyanaxi.
