Parasitic crustaceans that are most frequently found in rearing of freshwater species cause diseases such as Lerneosis and Argulosis on freshwater fish that are widely spread both in Europe and North America and Asia as well. Susceptible to diseases are carp (Cyprinus carpio), silverfish (Carassius auratus gibelio) and goldfish (Carasius carasius), white (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and bright big-head carp (Aristichthis nobilis), white grass carp (Cte-nopharingodon idella), bream (Abramis brama), arched trout (Salmo gairdneri irideus), etc.

Key words: parasitic crustaceans, lerneosis, argulosis
