Host Specificity: This parasite is genus specific (Seriola). It may be a characteristic parasite of greater amberjack (Ref. 358). Members of the class Trematoda are parasitic, thus requires a host to survive. Life cycle: Eggs are passed on to the feces of the hosts. Embryos hatch into miracidia and penetrate the tissues of snails where they further undergo three stages: sporocysts (Ref. 833).
