Gasterosteus aculeatus

Linnaeus, 1758

Rudolf Svensen Anybody knows what kind of parasite this Three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) is infected by? Looks like som kind of eggs.

Erling Svensen The picture is very small? I would suggest to send a high res to Torleiv. He knows so many people working with "all the strange things" and I am quite sure he can help.

René Weterings Picture is taken during a nightdive yesterday evening, water temperature was only 2 Celcius/ 36 F. My hands were very cold and painfull so taken pictures was very difficult. This was the first time I took my new set to the salt water in our coastal waters in "Zeeland".

Rob Maller .......and it worked out right! :)
