Description/Abstract

Largemouth bass, Micropterus salmoides, are a top predator in the Back Bay ecosystem of south-eastern Virginia and are affected by a variety of parasites that may be negatively impacting their health and population growth. My project aims to perform, for the first time, a comprehensive survey of parasites infecting these ecologically and recreationally important fish using DNA sequencing and morphological study.
