: The parasitological samples used in this study were collected from 41 fresh gilthead sea breams from aquaculture batches destined for human consumption. This was the minimum number required to collect the parasites needed. Gilthead seabream is listed as a “least concern” species by the UICN. Fish were purchased dead from licensed fish farmers and only parasite eggs were handled alive in the experiments. Experimental procedures using platyhelminths are not subject to any regulation, thus approval by an ethics committee was not required.
