AbstractThe effect of two parasites Hamatopeduncularia sp. and Caligus sp. on some blood parameters of 121 marine catfish (Ariidae) Arius bilineatus were studied. The results showed that all blood parameters were higher in healthy fishes than those of infected ones, except W.B.C. counts. In all levels of infections there were a reduction in P.C.V., Hb. and R.B.C. counts and increased in W.B.C. counts. Male fishes have higher values than females either in healthy and infected status.
