|This is a new animal
I just learned about, the carp louse.
It parasitizes fish primarily.
This group is found worldwide with 23 freshwater and marine species in
US waters. However this species is native to SE Asia. It has been spread to other continents with
shipments of goldfish. According to William Poly at the California Academy of
Sciences, it has been found in these states. In Africa, they are parasitizing
rainbow trout in culture facilities.
