Present study was conducted to investigate the prevalence of different helminth parasites of freshwater murrel, Channa punctatus (Bl.). Seventy five specimens of C. punctatus were examined for the occurrence of helminth parasites. Two species of digentic trematode (E. heterostomum and Clinostomum complanatum) and one species of acanthocephla (Pallisentis sp.) were recovered from different organs. According to their prevalence (%), E. heterostomum (28.0%) is dominant species followed by Pallisentis sp. (26.6%). While Clinostomum complanatum (20.0%) showed least prevalence.
