ABSTRACT
Monthly parasitological surveys were carried out to study host parasite relationship in relation to body weight of the host, Heteropneustes fossilis. It was found that fish having 151-200 g weight showed maximum prevalence and relative density but maximum mean intensity of cestode infection was recorded in the host ranging 51-100 g body weight.

Key words : Body weight, Cestodes, Heteropneustes fossilis, Mean intensity, Prevalence, Relative density.
