Attacks by the isopod Excorallana tricornis tricornis on Nassau grouper Epinephelus striatus caught in Antillean fish traps around Little Cayman Island, Cayman Islands, are recorded. Divers reported heavily parasitized fish during the study period, suggesting that trapping did not exclusively precipitate parasitism. Parasitic infestations were reported to be common in Nassau grouper immediately following their spawning season in mid-winter.
