Parasitological data were analysed in an attempt ot separate collections of male capelin (Mallotus villosus) caught on the spawning grounds at five localities in the estuary of the St. Lawrence River and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada, in 1994. Only three of the 21 parasite taxa infecting Gulf capelin were considered potentially useful as stock discriminators : the protistan Microsporidium sp. And the larval nematodes Anisakis simplex and Contracaecinea gen. Sp. The results of nonparametric discriminant analyses showed a very low percentage of correct classification, with only 24 ppt (30/125) of the fish being assigned to their true category. No pattern of misclassification was observed to support the regrouping of collections by eastern and western origin. Parasitological data thus provide no evidence to support the concept of separate stocks of capelin in the St. Lawrence estuary and gulf.

The main concentrations of Greenland halibut in the Gulf of St. Lawrence during the summer are found on the west side of Anticosti Island and to a lesser extent north of this Island and in the Esquiman Channel near the west coast of Newfoundland. Gillnet is the main fishing gear used in this fishery since the mid 1970's. Preliminary landings of 1995 reached 2300 t. The total allowable catch (TAC) was fixed to 4000 t since 1993. In 1996, it was reduced to 2000 t. Abundance indices increase slightly since 1990. Also, the abundance of commercial sizes (over 40 cm) Greenland halibut has increased since 1994 because of the presence of good year-classes. However, large size (over 50 cm) fish were still not numerous in the population in 1995 and the number of juveniles in 1995 was still lower than the average of 1990-1995. The length at which 50 % of the females reach maturity was estimated at 49 cm in 1995. The weight of fish according to length (or condition) increased slightly in 1995 for fish over 40 cm. In winter, the Greenland halibut concentrated in the Cabot Strait area are probably coming from the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

In 1994, world aquaculture production reached 25.5 million mt, valued at US$ 39.83 billion. Asia contributed 89.9 % of this total, and has since continued to dominate global production. The drive to produce more fish and shellfish to meet the growing demand has lead many aquaculturists in Asia to intensify their operations. In many instances, the complex balance between the fish/shellfish and the environment is not well understood, the organism under culture subsequently becoming stressed and prone to infections. As we have already witnessed, disease has been and will continue to be a major constraint to the development of the aquaculture industry. Considering the FAO's priority on developing sustainable aquaculture, the large Asian contribution to global aquaculture production and the seemingly high losses of revenue due to diseases and health-related problems, FAO, in consultation with the Network of Aquaculture Centres in the Asia-Pacific (NACA), the Aquatic Animal Health Research Institute (AAHRI), the South East Asian Fisheries Development Centre (SEAFDEC) and the Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (UPM), and in collaboration with the Fish Health Section of the Asian Fisheries Society (FHS/AFS), organized a Regional Expert Consultation on Aquaculture Health Management in Asia and the Pacific, which was held at the Universiti Pertanian Malaysia in Serdang, Malaysia in May 1995. This document comprises the technical papers presented at the Consultation, and is a supplement to the report of the consultation, FAO Fisheries Report No. 529 (FAO, Rome, 1995. 24 p.).

Twenty-three parasite taxa were identified from 100 sharp-beaked redfishes (50 Sebastes fasciatus and 50 Sebastes mentella) collected in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (August 1992), including 2 Coccidia, 2 Myxosporea, 9 Digenea, 2 Cestoda, 4 Nematoda, 1 Acanthocephala, and 3 Crustacea. New host records are reported for Sebastes fasciatus (Eimeriida gen.sp., Myxidium incurvatum, Brachyphallus crenatus, Gonocerca sp., and Lafystius morhuanus) and for Sebastes mentella (Crepidostomum sp. and Neoechinorhynchus rutili). The parasite faunas of the two redfishes were comparable in species diversity, 20 taxa being identified from Sebastes fasciatus and 18 from Sebastes mentella. Prevalence of M. incurvatum and abundances of Derogenes varicus, Podocotyle reflexa, Anisakinae gen.sp. larva, Contracaecinea gen.sp. larva, Hysterothylacium aduncum larva, and Chondracanthus nodosus were greater in Sebastes fasciatus, while only Sphyrion lumpi was more abundant in Sebastes mentella. The parasitic copepods Chondracanthus nodosus and Sphyrion lumpi show potential as biological tags for the identification of redfish species.

The 4th DFO Atlantic Parasitologist's Workshop, held on the 29 September 1994 at the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Centre, St. John's, Nfld., brought together researchers from four of the Department's Atlantic laboratories to review work accomplished since September 1993 and to discuss and coordinate activities planned for 1995/1996. This report summarizes by region the large amount of research and related activities acoomplished by DFO's Atlantic parasitologists during the past year and outlines that planned for the near future. An executive summary provides highlighhts of these accomplishments and outlines the research priorities for the Atlantic Canada zone and the individuals regions.

A survey of the parasites of Greenland halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides) caught in Canadian Atlantic waters extending from Cumberland Sound, Northwest Territories, to the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Saguenay Fjord was conducted during the period January 1990 to March 1991. From examination of 350 fish a total of 46 parasite taxa were identified (4 Myxosporea, 1 Monogenea, 19 Digenea, 6 Cestoda, 8 Nematoda, 5 Acanthocephala, 2 Crustacea, and 1 Hirudinoidea). Included among these are 15 taxa previously unreported from this fish (Genolinea laticauda Manter, 1925; Gonocerca phycidis Manter 1925; Neophasis sp.; Podocotyle reflexa (Creplin, 1825); Prosorhynchus squamatus Odhner, 1905; Steringophorus sp.; Eubothrium parvum Nybelin, 1922; Proteocephalus sp.; Ascarophis arctica Polyansky, 1952; Ascarophis filiformis Polyansky, 1952; Spirurida gen. Sp. Larva; Corynosoma validum Van Cleave, 1953; Corynosoma wegeneri Heinze, 1934; Gnathia elongata (Krøyer, 1849); and Notostomum laeve Levinsen, 1882). New Canadian records include only Steringophorus sp. And N. laeve. The parasite fauna of Greenland halibut is characterized by a large number of ubiquitous species, including many larval forms that show little host specificity, and a smaller number of species typical of pleuronectiform fishes, two of which (Myxoproteus reinhardti (Wierzbicka, 1986) and Hatschekia reinhardtii Wierzbicka, 1989) are known only from this fish. A complete listing of all parasite reported from Greenland halibut is included as an appendix.©1994 National Research Council Canada

The usefulness of parasites as biological tags for stocks of Greenland halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides) occurring off the Atlantic coast of Canada and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence was investigated. Nonparametric discriminant function analyses of eight collections comprising a total of 231 large fish (>39 cm) using counts for selected parasite taxa (Corynosoma strumosum juvenile, Otodistomum sp. Metacercaria, Contracaecinea spp. Larva, Anisakis simplex larva, and Pseudoterranova decipiens larva) gave accurate results (almost 100 % correct classification) for the separation of fish from the Gulf of St. Lawrence from those collected from adjacent areas of the Saguenay Fjord and the Atlantic Ocean off Labrador. Little, if any, mixing of subadult or adult fish apparently occurs among these areas.©1993 National Research Council of Canada

A study was conducted to determine the usefulness of parasites as biological tags for stocks of Greenland halibut occurring off the Atlantic coast of Canada and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. More than 40 species of parasites were identified from examination of a total of 231 large fish (greater than 39 cm) collected from eight localities. Analyses using five taxa (Corynosoma strumosum juvenile, Otodistomum sp. metacercaria, Contracaecinea spp. larva, Anisakis simplex larva and Pseudoterranova decipiens larva) gave highly accurate results (almost 100 ppt correct classification) for the separation of fish from the Gulf of St. Lawrence from those collected from adjacent areas of the Saguenay Fjord and the Atlantic Ocean off Labrador. It is concluded that little, if any mixing of subadult or adult fish occurs among these areas.
