Drawings made and measurements taken of fresh preparations are often indispensable for the identification of fish parasites. However, fresh microscopic preparations rapidly deteriorate and remain suitable for examination for a short time only. The so-called video-technical method described in this paper facilitates the examination of fresh preparations. With the help of this procedure, parasites which are fragile, prone to drying, or can be found only once a year can be studied at any moment in time and over a prolonged period.
