Abstract

The aim of this study that was carried out from March 15, 2003 to February15, 2005 was to determine the parasites of tench (Tinca tinca L., 1758) inhabiting the Beyşehir Lake. During the study, a total of 334 tenches (T. tinca ) were caught in different regions of Beyşehir Lake monthly and investigated parasitologically. Endoparasites in tenches were found to be plerocercoids of Ligula intestinalis, Caryophyllaeus laticeps, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi and Proteocephalus torulosus from Cestoda, Asymphylodora tincae from Digenea and Acanthocephalus anguillae from Acanthocephala. Of these parasites, Acanthocephalus anguillae has been recorded for the first time in the tenchs of Turkey.
