The author examined 2145 juvenile individuals of cape hake, Merluccius capensis Castelnau, 1861 caught off Namibia. The presence of larval Anisakis simplex (Rud., 1809), larval Hepatoxylon trichiuri Holten, 1802 as well as Parabrachiella australis Wilson,1923 was revealed. The degree of infestation was related to sex and age of the fish.;
