ABSTRACT

Twenty-three species of parasitic Copepoda, belonging to seven families (Bomolochidae, Taeniacanthidae, Chondracanthidae, Caligidae, Hatschekidae, Lernanthropidae and Lernaeo­podidae) in two orders (Poecilostomatoida and Siphonostomatoida) are reported from 23 species of marine fishes collected in a local fish market in Kuwait. All of the recovered parasites are new to Kuwait. A brief discussion is given of each species of parasite in regard to its taxonomy, distribution and other aspects of its biology. A host-parasite list (in alphabetical order) is also provided for quick reference.
