There is increasing interest in the striped seabream, Lithognathus mormyrus (Linnaeus, 1758) as an alternative fish species in aquaculture in the Mediterranean region. This paper provided information on the infestation of species of Clavellotis briani Benmansour et al (2001) (Lernaeopodidae) collected from striped seabream in Northeast Mediterranean Sea waters off the Turkish coast. A total of 234 fish were examined between May 2011 and April 2012 and female parasites were collected from the branchial arches of fish and identified. During a 12-month survey the prevalence was calculated as 3.4% for C. briani. The striped seabream is known as an alternative culture species for Mersin Bay. This is the first report of Clavellotis briani in wild population of L. mormyrus from Mersin Bay (Northeast Mediterranean Sea) and Turkish waters
Çizgili mercan, Lithognathus mormyrus (Linnaeus, 1758) Akdeniz’de artan bir ilgi ile alternatif tür yetiştiriciliği için dikkati çeken bir türdür. Bu çalışmada, Türkiye’nin Kuzey-Doğu Akdeniz kıyılarından yakalanan çizgili mercan (Lithognathus mormyrus) balıklarının solungaç kemerlerinden Clavellotis briani Benmansour et al (2001) (Lernaeopodidae) izole edilmiş ve tanımlanmıştır. Mayıs 2011 ile Nisan 2012 aralığında 12 aylık örnekleme ile incelenen 234 balıkta bulunan C. briani (dişi) prevalansı % 3.4 olarak hesaplanmıştır. Çalışma, yetiştiricilik açısından önemli bir türün doğal popülasyonunda ve gelecekte en popüler yetiştiricilik sahalarından biri olan Mersin Körfezi’nden ve Türkiye sularından Clavellotis briani için ilk rapordur.
