Abstract

In Brazil aquaculture is very important because there is a large production of fish for food and for ornamental aquariums. Myxozoans are parasites which has a complex life cycle parasitizing a vertebrate host, especially fish, and an invertebrate host, these being annelids. The myxozoans are among the agents responsible for causing diseases in fish and can cause big economic losses, with high mortality rates. Many myxozoans remain unknown to the scientific community and its potential to cause disease in fish follows undetermined in some cases. The rivers of São Paulo suffer human action and have a high diversity of fish species, offering them in abundance for human consumption, taking the importance of studying the parasite diversity of fish these rivers be even greater. Molecular biology methods using the 18S rDNA have been widely used in parasites of the phylum Myxozoa investigations on different approaches, such as differentiation of morphologically similar species. The main objective of this study is to identify morphologically and molecularly myxozoans parasites of fish from inland rivers in the state of São Paulo, as well as characterize the phylogenetic relationships of these parasites and their pathological potential, analyzing the host-parasite interactions.
