Abstract

Nematodes of the genus Raphidascaris were studied from the small intestine and stomach tissue of Mugil cephalus Linn., 1758 from Karachi coast, Pakistan. The small intestine of the fish was severely infected with Raphidascaris larvae. On the average 40 to 48 percent of the larvae found were alive. Five thousand worms in just 4 fish can be very harmful and may lead to further decline in the population of host fish.
