Abstract: Diversity in the world is staggering. India being a tropical nation provides suitable conditions for the multiplicity of varied fauna and their parasites. Already people from all around the country have studied and contributed a lot, but a lot of work still has to be done from Bihar, in particular from Tirhut division, Bihar. High humidity and tropical conditions enough leeway for a rich helminth fauna in this region. In this report studies have been made to obtain quantitative data on the Trematode parasites of a cold blooded animal, the air breathing fish Channa punctatus.
