Abstract

Six hundred and seventy nine specimens of Platichthys flesus (L.) were caught in summer (July–September) 1998 and 1999 from three regions of the Polish zone of the Baltic Sea: the Gulf of Gdańsk, the Pomeranian Bay and the open sea off Łeba. The biometric measurements (length, weight, age) and sex of the specimens were recorded. The specimens were examined for occurrence of parasites. The intensity, relative density and prevalence of infection were calculated.
