Abstract: Parasitic helminth fauna of Clarias gariepinus and Parachanna Obscura from a reputable fish farm, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria was evaluated using standard parasitological procedures. 4 different parasite species belonging to 2 parasitic classes; 3 species of Cestode (Bothriocephalus spp., Diphilobothrium latum and Ligula intestinalis) and a species of Nematode, (Camallanus spp.) were recovered from the studied fish species. A total of 113 parasites comprising of 52(46.02%) and 61(53.95%) parasites were recovered from 89 (59.30%), comprising of 41(54.70%) and 48(64.00%) infested C. gariepinus and P. obscura, respectively. Infestation was more in C. gariepinus compared to P. obscura.
