Ligules fish, what kind of disease
I’m sure many fishermen have seen fish with such a disease in which fairly large fish float on the surface of the water, almost hiding from the threat. For fish you can quietly approach in a boat, she for a time can hide under water, but after a minute, the second, will once again emerge. Anglers with experience know that fish infected with legalism. Found that not all species of parasites found on the fish or inside the body are dangerous to people. As reported by numerous sources, ligules belongs to this group.
Ligules affects all kinds of carp fish. To characterize in detail the cycle of the formation of the disease is not well described in textbooks on Parasitology.
