The worm within the fish

Frankfurt am Main, July 24, 2010. The imagination of worms within a fish is disgusting to many people. The scientific term for parasitic worms that live inside a host is helminth. Nematodes (roundworms), which live as parasites in the sea and on marine animals, make up one of three families that belong to this division. They are very useful for ascertaining a lot about the fish’s habitat, which is the aim of Prof. Dr. Sven Klimpel of the Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiK-F). At a research expedition in the North Atlantic around Spitsbergen, his colleague Markus W. Busch analyzed the consequences of climate change in the Barents Sea. This four-week long expedition with the German fishery research ship „Walther Herwig III“ was accomplished in cooperation with the Federal Research Institute of Nutrition and Food (Max Rubner-Institut (MRI)) and ceased mid-July.
