Abstract: Investigations of the distribution of three parasites of mussels, an internal copepod parasite of the gut (Mytilicola intestinalis), an external decapod parasite in the gill region (Pinnotheres pissum) and an analid shell parasite (Polydora ciliata) were carried out from October 1971 to April 1972. Samples from 26 locations around the Irish coast were investigated. One hundred mussels from each sample were weighed, measured in 5 mm groups, boiled and the following were estimated as percentages of the whole mussel:- a. Shell; b. Meat; and c. Loss.
