Experimental studies on some host-parasite relationships of the Acanthocephala. Effect of host size and starvation on Echinorhynchus truttae Schrank, 1788, in its definitive host



Experimental studies on some host-parasite relationships of the Acanthocephala. Effect of host size and starvation on Echinorhynchus truttae Schrank, 1788, in its definitive host



Acta Parasitologica Polonica 20(26/39): 383-388



The effects of size and starvation of Salmo trutta on Echinorhynchus truttae were studied experimentally and in the field. Host starvation for 3 to 24 days did not lead to the expulsion of established worms. There was no evidence of a limit to the size of actively feeding trout that could be infected, e.g. a natural infection was seen in a 51 mm long fish (0+ year class).
