With increased knowledge accumulating from both laboratory and field studies, we can begin to take a holistic approach to gyrodactylid systematics by analysing morphological, molecular, ecological and biogeographical trends.

Malmberg subdivided the genus into six subgenera. The true sister species of G. Ontogenetic variation in parasite infracommunities of the clingfish Sicyases sanguineus Pisces: BoxOulu, Finland.

A morphological description of the latter species is unavailable. The marginal hook sickles of G. Multiple sequence alignment with high accuracy and high throughput. The considerable geographical spread of the three species assigned to this new G.

These species have previously been assigned to G. For scanning electron microscopy SEM ggyrodactylus, single specimens of Gyrodactylus were subjected to full proteolytic digestion gyrodactyljs 11 mm round glass coverslips to obtain tissue-free attachment hooks.


Gyrodactylids are small With increasing aquacultural practices, the threat posed by gyrodactylids is ever more apparent, particularly since the havoc created by the G. Invasive Aquatic Species of Europe.

The best known examples are two species, G. Comments Morphologically, the opisthaptoral hooks, notably the marginal hook sickles, of G.

The use of native fish, rather than introduced species, as biological controls, therefore, is highly recommended to avoid these potential ecological impacts.
