    • Abstract


      Out of 2150 specimens of freshwater teleosts observed for the presence of haemoflagellate in their blood only 75 (3·48%) were found to be infected by trypanosomes. Siluroids were infected in higher numbers than others and the infection was found in blood only during winter months.
