In order to confirm that the third larvae stage found in fresh water fish and that the adult parasite found in definitive hosts, corresponded to different stages of the same parasite life cycle (G. spinigerum), we proceeded to the experimental infestation with the following finding of the adult parasite. We were able to confirm in a definitive way the identify of the larva found in fresh water fish.
