This study deals with clinical, post-mortem examination and parasitological identification of Caligus sp affecting infested Mugil cephalus, at Kafr El Sheikh Governorate fish farms. Histopathological examination of gills was investigated and recorded. Some treatment trials with freshwater, Metriphonate and freshly prepared Potassium permanganate were done. Freshwater with a 20-min immersion was successfully killed all copepods. While, short-term treatment for 30-min and 50-min immersion treatments with Metriphonate (20mg/l) and freshly prepared Potassium permanganate (10 mg/l) respectively, against Caligus sp infested Mugil cephalus were less effective than fresh water. These results concluded that, fresh water considered an effective in elimination of Caligus sp in Mugil cephalus.
