Abstract

This review is done to update the species list of the parasitic phyla: Ciliophora, Myxozoa, Myzozoa, Euglenozoa, Metamonada, Microsporidia and Choanozoa reported from freshwater and marine fishes from Turkey. Information from all available references (journal publications, reports of research projects, thesis, proceedings of congress, symposium proceedings) on different parasitic phyla except of helminths and crustacea reported from fishes of Turkey from 1931 to 2014 were gathered to provide parasite-host lists. This update includes additional records and allows for the correction of synonymies and valid names of species that were present in the preceding versions.  The list was compiled with the parasite species arranged by phylum, class and alphabetical, as appropriate. A review of the literature indicated the occurrence of 49 parasite species which included 21 Ciliophora, 16 Myxozoa, 5 Myzozoa, 3 Euglenozoa, 1 Metamonada,1 Microsporidia and 2 Choanozoa species.
