Dear collegues,

During our tagging program of parrotfishes in the sourthern Red Sea
(Massawa, Eritrea), we recently found some scarid species infested with
large isopod ectoparasites. We would like to have these parasites
identified by  an expert, but do not know whom to contact.
Is there anyone out there who could identify these isopods, or else,
suggest me a taxonomist who would have time to have a close look at these
fish parasites.

Many thanks in advance for your reactions.
Sincerely, Henrich
