Abstract

Changes in the species composition of parasite fauna in the European perch in Lake Gusinoye (the Lake Baikal basin) were analyzed in the periods before and during depression of host abundance (the early and late 1970s) and in the years of its recovery to a stable level (the mid-2010s). The period of depression was associated with a significant decrease in the species richness of parasite fauna. Subsequent recovery of perch abundance to a stable level resulted in an increase in the parasite species richness, but it remained lower than before the depression of host abundance.
