The ecological and parasitological characteristics of the golden redfish, Sebastes norvegicus (Ascanius, 1772) (Teleostei: Scorpaenidae) that inhabit the Arctic Ocean Seas

Original Papers Parasitology


An ecological, faunistic, and zoogeographical analysis of the parasite fauna of the golden redfish Sebastes norvegicus (Ascanius, 1772) that inhabit the Barents, Norwegian, and Greenland seas, has been performed. The specifics of formation of the parasite fauna in this species have been studied.
