The Mugilidae are present in the coastal waters of the Republic of Guinea. They are species of economic and food interest. This advantage means that they are also often fished and landed at the artisanal ports of Conakry. In the majority of cases, these fish species are carriers of parasites harmful to the health of consumers. The objective of this study was to assess the parasite load and identify the endoparasites most found in the Liza grandisquamus species landed at the Landréah landing stage in Conakry. Classical methods of parasitological analysis of fish were used. After surveys with fishing professionals (fishermen and fishmongers), the sampling was carried out because of one trip per month to the landing stage, each month 30 individuals were taken, ie 90 fish in total. The results of the survey show that 48% of fishermen and 52% of fishmongers recognize the existence of parasites in the fish encountered. Parasitological analyzes showed the presence of 45% of nematode larvae, followed by 40% of cestodes and 15% of trematodes. The analysis focused on male and female fish from Sangaréyah bay. The presence of pathogenic parasites in these estuarine waters can affect fishery resources and public health.[Full Text Article]
