Aquaculture is an important food-producing sector. It provides much needed protein, employment, income and livelihoods support to many people in the world and this is especially true in most developing countries. A significant challenge to the expansion of aquaculture production is the outbreak of disease. Potential economic losses from disease outbreaks are significant, and can affect the survival of the industry. Fish diseases were caused by enfectious agents as parasite, bacteria, virus and fungus. Gyrodactylus spp., Tetraonchus spp., Discootyle spp., Cyathocephalsus spp., Proteocephalus spp., Eubothrium spp., Diphyllobothrium spp., Trianophorus spp., Crepidostomum spp., Phyllodistomum spp., Sanguinicola spp., Diplostomum spp., Tylodelphys spp., Apatemon spp. are observed in rainbow trout. Gyrodactylus salaris caused the mortality up to 95 % in salmon population in some rivers in Norvay. So, G. salaris is a disease between compulsory notifiable diseases in EU. However, such a pathogen monogenean enfestations have not been appeared in Turkey, First record of Crepidostomum farionis was carried out in rainbow trout in Elazığ from Turkey. The present work aim to the parasitic diseases of freshwater trout caused by phylum Plathyhelmintes, how they are transmitted, which effects they have on trouts, how they could be diagnosed, and how they could be controlled and treated. Keywords: Trout, disease, parasite, platyhelminthes, diagnosis, treatment
