Abstract

Parasitism of fish by coelenterates is rare and the first North American infection was reported in sturgeon (Hoffman et al., 1974, J Parasitol 60: 548-550). In the USSR parasitism of sturgeon (Acipenser sp.) eggs by the coelenterate Polypodium hydriforme Ussov 1885 has long been reported and investigated [Raikova, 1959, in Parasites of Freshwater Fish and the Biological Basis for their Control. Bull State Sci Res Inst Lake and River Fish. XLIX. Eng. transl. No. TT61-31056, O. T. S., U. S. Dep. Commerce, Washington, D. C., 1962, 235 p.: Raikova, 1973, (Proc Second Internat Symp on Cnidaria), Seto Marine Biological Laboratory 20: 165-173]. This report represents the first known infection of Polypodium in the paddlefish (Polyodon spathula).
