dc.description.abstractA one-year study (November 2000 - November 2001) of internal and external parasites of the black sea bass, Centropristis striata from a wild population offshore Sapelo Island examined the seasonal dynamics of parasites in relationship to black sea bass health. Over a twelve-month period, parasite abundance and prevalence was recorded and compared to the physiology of the fish. At least fifteen fish were collected monthly and sampled for internal and external parasites. This study on black sea bass from Georgia revealed nine species (two internal and seven external) of parasites which may have the capability of causing epizootics in aquacultural operations. The biology of the black sea bass is reviewed including age, growth, and reproduction; and biological aspects relevant to management of future aquaculture of the black sea bass are discussed.
