Abstract.

During the present investigation, 450 fishes belonging to seven genera and seven species were examined for helminth parasites. Of these, 216 fishes (48%) were found to harbour Acanthocephala (14%), cestodes (16.22%), Digenea (10.66%), Monogenea (1.77%), or nematodes (6.22%). The species richness and intensity of infections are given. Results summarized from nine studies on the helminth parasites of fish from inland waters are presented.
