A survey of the trematode parasites of fishes from Lake Hertel, Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec.

The following work is based on a study of the trematodes collected from the fishes of Lake Hertel. It deals with the taxonomy of the trematodes and with some of the relationships between the host and the parasite. Lake Hertel is situated at an elevation of 570 feet on Mont St. Hilaire one of the Monteregion Hills in the St. Lawrence Lowlands. The lake measures about 2,000 feet in length and in width. It has a surface area of between 75 and 80 acres and a maximum depth of between 24 and 30 feet depending on the season of the year. The shoreline is regular and most of the bottom is of a fine dark mud. There is little variety in the type of habitats available to the various species of fish and their parasites.
