The present study was carried out from May 2013 to May 2015 on helminth parasites of Salmo trutta fario and Schizothorax plagiostomus of Gurez Valley. Out of 210 specimens of Salmo trutta and 126 specimens of Schizothorax plagiostomus examined during the present study, 49 and 35 respectively were infected with different types of helminth parasites. The recovered parasites during the study include Adenoscolex oreini; Rhabdochona guptii in S. trutta and Adenoscolex oreini; Rhabdochona guptii and Camallanus fotedari in S. plagiostomus. These parasite species were identified on the basis of whole worm recovery for the first time from this region; collected from fishes of Gurez valley and the different localities of Gurez Valley viz.; Baktoor, Dawar, Achoora, Barnai, PTL form new locality records for these Helminth species, as mentioned against each.
Conclusion: The study shows that different liver diseases may affect LAL activity that is inversely related to the age of patients and both triglycerides and uric acid serum levels. LAL-A is reduced in a subgroup of WD patients that showed higher BMI, total cholesterol, triglycerides and uric acid levels.
