The aim of this study was to compare the prevalence and intensity of ectoparasites which infest mud crab (Scylla serrata) and white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei). The prevalence of ectoparasite infestation in mud crab was 92.5% with an intensity of 801.18 per sample while the infestation in white shrimp showed 62% with the intensity of 19.98 per sample. It could be concluded that the ectoparasites were found in mud crab more frequently than in white shrimp.
