Abstract
Natural infection of 2 to 6-year-old perch with the cestode parasites Triaenophorus nodulosus was shown to have minor effects on the studied components of the antioxidant defense system, nucleic acids degradation, and carbohydrate metabolism enzymes in the liver of the fish. The level of infection of 1-4 parasite larvae per fish observed in wild population of perch was shown to be moderate in terms of its effect on the health of the host fish. The activity of hepatic enzymes β-galactosidase, β-glucosidase, cathepsin D, and glutathione S-transferase showed different responses in infected males and females, which indicates different potential resistance of fish to the stress exposure between genders.
