The present investigation covered 400 specimens of Platichthys flesus and 22 of Scophthalmus maximus caught in the period of October 1993-December 1994 in the Gulf of Gdańsk (the South-east Baltic). The following parasite species were found: Bothriocephalus scorpii, Hysterothylacium auctum, Cucullanus heterochrous, Cuculanellus minutus, Anisakis simplex, Raphidascaris sp. (probably R. acus), Echinorhynchus gadi, and Pomphorhynchus laevis. The occurrence of parasites was studied in relation to the season of fishing and the length of the fish body.
