The use of fish parasites as a biomonitor and bioindicator species in the aquatic ecosystem has attracted ecologists' interest in recent years and has provided an increase of their importance in biomonitoring. Fish parasites are an important part of the aquatic ecosystem in terms of species diversity and abundance. They are used as indicator species in biomonitoring, because they are quickly respond to environmental changes in the aquatic environment. Fish parasites are used indicators which, as biological indicators due to information about the phylogenetic structure of hosts, population biology, stock removal, migration and feeding; as accumulation indicators due to they can accumulate more heavy metals than in the aquatic environment; and as effect ecosystem indicators due to possible changes in biomass, community structure, species diversity, richness, abundance of fish parasites in environmental pollution surveys. It can also complement other physical and chemical monitoring methods, while longer-term monitoring can be made about host biology and environmental changes via fish parasites.

Balık parazitlerinin sucul ekosistemde biyomonitör ve biyoindikatör türler olarak kullanılması son yıllarda ekolojistlerin ilgisi çekmiş ve biyoizlemdeki (biyomonitoring) öneminin artmasını sağlamıştır. Balık parazitleri tür çeşitliliği ve bolluğu bakımından sucul ekosistemin önemli bir parçasını oluşturmaktadır. Sucul ortamdaki çevresel değişimlere hızlı bir şekilde tepki verdikleri için biyoizlemde indikatör tür olarak kullanılmaktadır. Balık parazitleri konaklarının filogenetik yapısı, populasyon biyolojisi, stokların ayrılması, göçü ve beslenmesinde biyolojik indikatörler olarak, konağından ve sucul ortamdakinden daha fazla ağır metali dokusunda biriktirmesinden dolayı birikim indikatörü olarak ve çevresel kirlilik araştırmalarında balık parazitlerinin biyokütle, topluluk yapısı, tür çeşitliliği, zenginliği, bolluğu üzerinde olası değişiklikler nedeniyle etki - ekosistem indikatörleri olarak kullanılmaktadır. Ayrıca balık parazitleri aracılığıyla konak biyolojisi ve çevresel değişimler hakkında daha uzun vadeli gözlem gerçekleştirilebilirken, bu gözlem diğer fiziksel ve kimyasal gözlem metodlarını da tamamlayıcı niteliktedir.
