Abstract: Ligulosis is occurred by a pseudophyllidean cestoda and cosmopolitan fish tapeworm named Ligula intestinalis. The parasite is a permanent pathogen for native as well as wild fish as intermediate host in which the parasite usually develops to a plerocercoid. If the piscivorous birds as final hosts ingest the infected fish, the parasites are located in their intestines (Ahmadiara, 2013).
