The study of the cymothoid isopod parasites on marine fishes from Tunisian localities has allowed us to distinguish eight species, seven of which have already been recorded and one, Mothocya epimerica which is new to the region. New hosts for Cerathotoa parallela and Nerocila orbignyi are reported. For each parasite species collected, the host fish, the parasitic specificity and the parasitological index are given.
