A possible explanation for the aggregated distribution of Argulus canadensis Wilson, 1916 (Crustacea: Branchiura) on juvenile sticklebacks (Gasterosteidae)



A possible explanation for the aggregated distribution of Argulus canadensis Wilson, 1916 (Crustacea: Branchiura) on juvenile sticklebacks (Gasterosteidae)



Journal of Parasitology 751: 58-60



In laboratory experiments, the distribution of the ectoparasite A. canadensis was examined on juvenile threespine sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus), and it was determined whether a fish that had acquired 1 parasite had a greater probability of having more parasites. A. canadensis were aggregated on their hosts, so that most fish harboured few or no parasites, and few fish harboured large numbers of A. canadensis.
