The study of fish parasites in Malaysia dates back to more than a century, when a report on the Crustacea collected during the Cambridge University “Skeat Expedition” to the Malay Peninsula in 1899 – 1900 described the presence of parasitic isopod infecting freshwater fish. However, following this report no systematic studies on Malaysian fish parasites were done until the 1960s, when modern research on the country’s fish parasites began. This book compiles the dedicated efforts of several Malaysian fish parasitologists and their students, who have published extensively on the taxonomy, lifecycles, ecology, pathology and treatment of parasites of freshwater and marine fishes. Also included are the many taxonomic and other studies conducted by foreign scientists, working both in Malaysia and in international laboratories.
