Fish Lice (Argulus)

The fish lice parasite, Argulus uses tiny suckers to adhere to the surface of fish.  They have little daggers as mouthparts that are used to puncture the fish and gain access to blood to feed upon. Fish lice bites can allow bacteria such as Aeromonas and Pseudomonas to infect the fishes skin resulting in ulcers.
