dc.description.abstract Sea bream, Sparus aurata L., and sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax L., were sampled from an off- shore cage farm in eastern Greece, an inshore cage fish farm in southern Greece, and a lagoon in northern Greece. The prevalence and intensity of Metazoan parasites and factors associated with the prevalence were investigated. In Farm 1 (eastern Greece), ectoparasite prevalence in sea bream and sea bass was 61.5% and 76.9% for Monogenea, none for Isopoda, and 0 and 23% for Copepoda. In Farm 2 the prevalence was 13.3% and 26.3% for Monogenea, 13.7% and 20% for Isopoda, and 0 and 13.6% for Copepoda. In the lagoon, the prevalence of ectoparasites was 100% and 21.9% for Monogenea and Copepoda, respectively. The lagoon had the highest prevalence of parasites among the studied ecosystems, however, the variety did not significant- ly affect the health of the infected fish. In Sparidae, gill lesions were due to monogeneans while skin and eye lesions were due to larvae of the isopod Ceratothoa oestroides that caused severe pathology. Furnestinia echeneis and Diplectanum aequans were host specific to sea bream and sea bass, respectively, and persisted in all aquaculture systems. Lernanthropus kroyeri was host specific and detected only in sea bass from the cage farms. en_US
