Description 
Summary

This catalogue is a ready way to access information on the host- parasite relationships of marine organisms. It was started in about 1922 as a manuscript catalogue, and was maintained as such until 1987. Since 1988 the catalogue has been continued electronically, with a few added parameters (e.g. geographical area).
