Fish purchased from Igbokoda was transported to the Department of Biology Laboratory, FUTA, and was sacrificed, measure and dissected to reveal the vital organ for parasite examination. Of the 200 sample of Tilapia examined, 84 (42%) were infected. The most prevalent parasite was Diphyllobothrium latum with prevalence of 32 (38%) followed by Camallanus 20 (23.8%), Gnathostoma spinigerum 14 (16.67%), Procamallanus 10 (11.9%) and Clinostomum with the lowest prevalence of 8...
