Abstract

The present paper examined the prevalence and size relationship of Probopyrus pacificensis and Macrobrachium tenellum at Ameca River. Also, the effect of this parasite on the growth and survival of M. tenellum were reported. Four sampling sites were selected in the Ameca River México: two at upstream and two near to the opening. This study confirms the occurrence of P. pacificensis in prawns of this region. The parasite infested mainly female prawns. Our results suggested that P. pacificensis has no negative effect on the growth of its host, neither affects survival, at least in the studied.
