Lineage Ten hake and kingclip fish have been used to extract 77 samples from which parasites were counted. After dissection, all internal organs as well as gills and body surface were washed. Parasites were recovered using a stereomicroscope. A subsample of each one of the parasitic species collected were stained for clasical taxonomic identification and the remainder were stored in absolute alcohol for molecular analysis.
