Abstract: 

Infection with Diplostomum spathaceum in 120 fishes (phytophage, common carp and Caras) in West Azerbaijan Hasanloo reservoir was evaluated from spring to winter in 2008. The results indicated that 70% of fish (84 fish) showed infection with this parasite which presents a high rate of infection in the fishes in this water resource. Comparing seasons reveals the highest infection rate of 96.7% in summer and the lowest rate of 46.7% in winter. The range of parasite number was between 1 and 259 with the mean of 28.63, standard deviation (S.D.) of 4.98. In addition, according to the statistical evaluations, there are significant differences between age and weight. The results show the increase in weight and age of fishes, and percentage of infection rate has increased too.
