Abstract The authors analyze the biodiversity of parasites of freshwater fish from Brazil. It is concluded that the number of parasites described so far is low compared to the biodiversity of host species in the country, and that the number of parasites of the different taxa is very variable. An interpretation of these data is suggested, and several recommendations are suggested for the study of fish parasites in Brazil.
