The first edition of this book, published in 1982 by the University of Queensland Press, established itself as the main introductory textbook on marine parasitology. The second edition has been revised to take account of recent advances and includes an additional chapter on the structure of marine parasite communities. There are also new sections on pollution, translocations of hosts and parasites, and on the effects of parasites on the aquaculture of marine fish, molluscs and crustacea. The chapters covering ecological, zoogeographical and economic aspects have also been significantly changed. Aimed particularly at students and research workers in parasitology and marine biology, the book will also be of interest to ecologists, biologists concerned with zoogeographical problems, and to aquaculturists, fish and fisheries biologists.

“Overall, this book is an excellent and stimulating discussion of marine parasites and the roles they play in the sea.”

- Quarterly Review of Biology

“[I]t provides a stimulating introduction to all those interested in the sea or in parasitology who are not aware of the wealth of research potential awaiting within the often bizarre and always fascinating field of the ecology of marine parasites.”
