    Recently open sea cage farming has emerged as an alternative and additional income source for fishermen and fish farmers in India. Asian seabass, Lates calcarifer is widely used in open sea cage culture due to its high market demand. In cage farming, high stocking densities and poor water quality enhance the parasite loads of the cultured fishes. In this study, 47 specimens of Asian seabass collected from cages located in Naganathwada, Sunkeri, Ankola were analysed with the aim of identifying the parasites prevalent among this species. All external and internal organs of each fish were examined separately under microscope for parasites. The collected monogenean parasites were washed in a 0.85% saline solution and fixed in 70% ethanol and identified. Most of the infected fishes had dark coloration of the body and postmortem findings revealed gills with excessive mucus secretion and sticking of the gill tips with greyish coloration.
