Figure 3

Proportion of established Diplostomum pseudospathaceum metacercariae in relation to ventilation volume of Oncorhynchus mykiss . Proportion was estimated as the percentage of established parasites of the number of cercariae pumped with the water flow through the gills during the period of exposure. Squares – 30%, triangles – 60%, circles – 90% oxygen concentration.
