What Is an Example of Parasitism in the Ocean? Some of the known types of parasitic relationships, or parasitism, include isopods who attach themselves to fish while feeding on their bodies. Isopods are basically fish lice that the fish are unable to get rid of. Oyster parasitism by Labyrinthomyxa marina in Florida.

1. Introduction. During –, Perkinsus marinus (=Dermocystidium marinum = Labyrinthomyxa marina) was recognized for the first time by several independent histopathological investigations of moribund Crassostrea virginica oysters from the Gulf of Mexico (), and was soon described as a prevalent and lethal oyster pathogen by several of those Cited by: 7. Oyster size varied from to cm shell height. Macroscopical analyses of tissues and shells did not show any symptom or sign of parasitism. However, histopatological analyses detected the occurrence of Nematopsis sp. parasiting mantle, gonads, gills and digestive glands (Figure 1). The relationship between the pea crab and its host is one of parasitism, rather than commensalism, since the host may be harmed by the crab's feeding activities. The pea crab relies solely on its host for food, safety, and oxygen. Pea crabs have a variety of hosts, the most important of which are pea crab lives in the mantle cavity of these : Pinnotheridae. Oyster weight and survival was monitored over a 7 month period. Data on temperature, salinity and chlorophyll a were also collected on a monthly basis. The trays were cleaned regularly to keep them free of biofouling. RESULTS Oyster weight did not increase significantly between October and February, varying between and 10 g (P > ).
