Abstract: A heavy infection in the body cavity of two sharp-nosed puffer
fish, Canthigaster jactator, by a nematode, Philometra sp. , is reported. The large
number and size of the nematodes caused a conspicuous protrusion of the
abdomen in both fish. Other infected specimens of C. jactator were observed in
the water s of Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii.
