Abstract: Monogeneans are major parasites of fish and cause large economic losses in aquaculture. Treatment for this parasitic infection is done with products that are mostly toxic to fish and the environment. Essential oils (EOs) of Melaleuca alternifolia and Mentha piperita and the oleoresin (OR) of Copaifera duckei were tested for their in vitro anthelmintic activity against the monogenean parasites (Anacanthorus penilabiatus and Mymarothecium viatorum) of pacu Piaractus mesopotamicus. Naturally infected gills were b… Show more

“…Peppermint, Mentha piperita L., is known to have beneficial effects on gastrointestinal tissue, immunomodulating actions and chemopreventive potential (McKay & Blumberg, ). Recently, some authors have shown that peppermint EO has antiparasitic effect against Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (Valladão et al., ) and monogeneans (Costa et al., ; Hashimoto et al., ; Malheiros, Maciel, Videira & Tavares‐Dias, ), and when used in water did not cause negative effects on fish haematology (Hashimoto et al., ). The enhancement of haematological and immune parameters was observed in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum) (Adel, Pourgholam, Zorriehzahra & Ghiasi, ), and Caspian white fish, Rutilus frisii kutum (Kamenskii) (Adel, Amiri, Zorriehzahra, Nematolahi & Esteban, ), fed with ethanolic extract of peppermint, and in Asian seabass, Lates calcarifer (Bloch), fed with a powder of peppermint leaves (Talpur, ).…”

“…The treatment used in the present study, with nanoemulsions prepared from C. officinalis oleoresin at 200 and 300 mg/L, showed 100% efficacy against monogeneans on the gills of C. macropomum after 15 min of exposure. Similarly, 100 mg/L of C. duckei oleoresin had 100% efficacy against Anacanthorus penilabiatus and Mymarothecium viatorum of Piaractus mesopotamicus (Costa et al., ). After monogeneans on the gills of C. macropomum has been exposed to nanoemulsion of Pterodon emarginatus essential oil at 400 e 600 mg/L for 15 min, the anthelmintic activity rate reached 100% (Valentim et al., ).…”

“…As the main products used for treatment and control of these parasites are chemotherapeutic substances that are highly toxic to fish (Boijink et al, 2015;Soares et al, 2016), there is a need for less toxic and novel bioactive compounds (Hashimoto et al, 2016;Soares et al, 2016;Zhang et al, 2014). Phytotherapy is an alternative treatment that has shown promising antiparasitic effects against monogeneans of fish (Costa et al, 2017;Hashimoto et al, 2016;Soares et al, 2016;Zhang et al, 2014), as well as the use of nanoemulsions containing essential oils .…”
