    The present study was designed to decide the rate of helminths parasites in Clarias lazera fishes in Jebel Aulia dam in relation to length, weight and condition factor index. A total of three hundred (300) fish sampled were secured from fishermen at the landing site for parasitic examination. They were inspected for parasitic infections utilizing direct wet mount microscopy and recolored smears. Standard length and fish body weights and condition index were determined. The results showed that, a total number 210(70%) of 300 examined Clarias lazera were infected. The fishes sampled were infected with nematode represented by (81.8%), and Cestode (12.7%), while the co-infected (Nematode and Cestode) (43.6%). Fishes in length 52-66 cm and 40-62 cm recorded highly correlation to helminths prevalence and medium in the length group 32-69 cm. The weight of the fish samples recovered by nemato.. View More»
