Abstract

The contributions of haematological factors to the estimations of Eustrongylides africanus larvae densities in Clarias gariepinus and C. anguillaris of Bida floodploain ;of Nigeria were investigated. Five haematological factors (neutrophils, lymphocytes and eosinophils counts; MCH and MCV) having positive or negative correlation coefficient (r) between 0.50 and 0.85 contributed to the estimation of E. africanus larvae densities in the wild population of Claria species.
