    Abstract

    Planktonic eggs of some pelagic and neritic fishes collected at Madras, Mandapam and Porto Novo were found infected by an acellular parasite, which was found within the yolk of the eggs. The taxonomic identity of the parasite is under investigation. Intense infection was found to lead to the death of eggs as well as the newly hatched larvae. The incidence of infected eggs in the samples was 4% at Madras, 16% at Mandapam and 10.5% at Porto Novo.
