Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to provide information on the diversity of the caligid
copepods parasitic on marine fishes species of the eastern Mediterranean waters off the
Turkish coast. In addition, we present the first report of Euryphorus brachypterus
(Copepoda: Caligidae) collected from Bluefin Tuna, Thunnus thynnus (Linnaeus,
1758) caught in the Mediterranean waters off Antalya Bay, Turkey.
