Abstract

Although helminthic infection was quite common in Indian Major Carps, only a very few parasites
among them are having Zoonotic potentiality. Only three Zoonotic strains Heterophys sp, Chlonorchis
sp and Capillaria sp were identified from Indian Major Carps during the research work. These
Zoonotic strains in particular regions were quite low as compared to other helminth sps. Catla catla
were found to be more susceptible than Labeo rohita and Cirrihinus mrigala. Nematode infection
was observed more in small size groups of fishes mainly in rainy season where as the prevalence
of trematodes was more during summer in small size fishes also
