Abstract
Nemipterus japonicus is one of the most convenient hosts in studying parasites because of its association with polluted<br> marine ecosystems making it as more susceptible to parasitism. Herein, the effect of endoparasites in the length-weight<br> relationship (LWR) and developmental stability of N. japonicus were investigated through the use of linear regression<br> analysis and fluctuating asymmetry (FA), respectively. There were 30 infected and 30 non-infected samples of N.<br> japonicus collected from the two sites in Mindanao, Philippines then measured morphometrically and examined<br> parasitologically. Results showed that four species of endoparasites wer...
