Abstract

In this study, 24 carps (Cyprinus carpio Lin.,1758) caught from Cavuscu Lake (Konya; 36 degrees 41 'N, 34 degrees 26'E) were examined for metazoan parasites. Infestation rate of Argulus foliaceus Lin.,1758 was found to be 45.8%. In addition, Argulus foliaceus was photographed using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and a light microscope.
