Abstract

Cantang groupers (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus-lanceolatus) is a hybridized grouper fish of Brackishculture Center, Situbondo. In Indonesia, currently information about the parasite infection in cantang groupers is still few. This study aims to determine the prevalence and intensity of endoparasite worms that infect the gastrointestinal of cantang groupers (E. fuscoguttatus-lanceolatus) on the floating net cages at Lamong Bay, Surabaya. The method used in this study is survey method and analyzed descriptively. The endoparasite worms found in the gastrointestinal of cantang groupers were Anisakis physeteris and Neoechinorhynchus longnucleanus. The highest prevalence is single infection of Neoechinorhynchus longnucleanus was 3 % (occasionally) with intensity of 1 individual/fish and the lowest prevalence was single infection of Anisakis physeteris is 1 % (occasionally) with intensity of 1 individual/fish.
