Complete parasitological analysis of the grey gurnard Trigla gurnardus (L.) had been carried out on Shetland Islands fishing grounds. Material was collected at random from commercial catches in March 1976. Generally, the presence of 14 species of parasites was ascertained (Protozoa - 1; Cestoda - 1; Trematoda - 7, Nematoda - 3, Crustacea-Copepoda - 1, and Fungi - 1 species). Frequency of their prevalence, as well as intensity and incidence were determined. Ten species were found first time as occurring on the grey gurnard.
