The growth performance of trout infected at low intensity (10 or less) with metacercarial cysts of Apatemon gracilis was investigated under conditions of satiation feeding. There was no correlation between individual specific growth rate and infection intensity. Uninfected individuals grew at rates similar to those of infected fish. At the observed infection intensities A. gracilis does not appear to influence growth in trout when feed is not limiting.
