87 individuals of Cape horse mackerel Trachurus trachuras capensis, caught on the Namibian fishing grounds off the Cunene mouth were examined. Representatives of 7 species of parasites (3 monogeneans, 2 nematodes, 1 hirudinean, and 1 copepod species) were found. A relationship between the infestation and fish age was given a particular attention.
