    Abstract

    Studies were carried out to assess the prevalence of nematode infestation in the gonads of the yellow edged lyretail grouper, Variola louti, over a two year period. The results showed the presence of nematodes during post monsoon months. Incidences of gonad atrophy were also noted leading to isolation and identification of the nematode. The Yellow edged lyretail a species which contributes to the hooks and line fishery, was seen to be infected with nematodes from the Philometra genera. Since the nematode is very specific to each fish further studies are essential for its identification.
