Abstract
This researchconducted ectoparasite scans from frogs (Ranaridibunda, Rana viridis) caughtfrom the same pool as Japanese fish (Carassiusauratus) reared in Dr. Nazmi TEKELIOGLU Freshwater  Research Station of Cukurova Universitybetween April-July 2016 periods. Ectoparasite examinations were performed on atotal of 120 fish and 60 frogs a monthly basis April, May and June. Forprotozoans in stationary preparation; formal acetic acid, Battin's fluid,Carry's fluid, Schaudinn fixative and glycerin were used. Klein's silverimpregnation method was used to prepare trichodina preparates. Materials takenby scraping the gills and skin tissues of the fish and the skin tissues of thefrog larvaes were examined, and metazoan and protozoan parasites were observed.All Parasites were photographed and identified to the genus level. In all ofthe study periods, parasites of the genera Dactylogyrusand Thricodina were detected in bothfish and frog larvaes. These results indicate that ectoparasite transmissionbetween goldfish and frog larvae was observed.
