Longnose dace R. cataractae, collected from the Tongue River and Goose Creek near Sheridan, Wyoming [USA], were analyzed for the incidence of the trematode parasite N. rhinichthysi, based upon fish size and sample location. Incidence and mean number of metacercarial cysts were significantly greater in the fish collected from Goose Creek. Greater nutrient loads in Goose Creek compared to the Tongue River, resulting in greater biotic community productivity with accompanying macrophytic growth, was concluded responsible. Incidence and mean number of cysts were greater on the dace from the Tongue River site downstream of the Goose Creek-Tongue River confluence compared to the Tongue River site upstream of the confluence. Nutrient inputs from Goose Creek increasing Tongue River productivity below the confluence were deemed responsible. Though there was a statistically significant difference in parasite burdens between sites, within site comparisons of log weight-log length relationships of parasitized and nonparasitized dace indicate that N. rhinichthysi burdens had no apparent effect upon the fish.
