This work investigated the protozoan parasites infesting the vannamei shrimp in farmed fish from Pasuruan, Indonesia. The protozoan parasites found in infested vannamei shrimp were ectoparasites; the protozoan Zoothamnium sp., Vorticella sp. and Epistylis sp. The fish were collected from a fish culture center in Pasuruan, Indonesia, weekly for one month. The diagnosis method as a part of the protozoan ectoparasite examination was scrapping. The prevalence rate of protozoan ectoparasites were, respectively, 72,5% for Zoothamnium sp., 55% for Vorticella sp. and 42,5% for Epistylis sp.
