Abstract: 

A survey has been done on parasites of 206 Acipenser persicus in three different major locations, where the sturgeons are caught, including fisheries sections of 1, 2 and a hatchery near the Sefid-rud River (Sad-e Sangar) in south-west of caspian Sea (Gillan province - Iran). Six different species of parasites were recovered from internal organs of the fish. Cucullanus sphaerocephalus and Skrjabinopsolus semiarmatus had the highest prevalence (84.85% and 51.23% respectively) and also, the intensity of these parasites were higher than others (11.31 and 15.25 respectively) but the other parasites had low prevalence and intensity. The Eustrongylides excisus (L), Anisakis sp. (L) and Amphilina foliacea are reported for the first time from A. persicus. The prevalence and intensity of parasites in fisheries section of 2 and Sad-e Sangar were more than section 1. A direct relation was found between some parasites (especially Cucullanus sphaerocephalus and Skrjabinopsolus semiarmatus) and size of the fish. The prevalence and intensity of parasites in females were more than males. It was found that there is a correlation between some parasites (especially Cucullanus sphaerocephalus and Skrjabinopsolus semiarmatus) and season. As a whole, there was a closely correlation between the diet of the fish and the type (diversity) of the parasites.
