Niclosamide is applied for the treatment of the disease of common carp hatchlings caused by Bothriocephalus acheilognathi. One of the main characteristics of this drug is a short half-life in water. A series of experiments were performed to determine the distribution of niclosamide residues in the organs and meat of the carp, in controlled conditions. It was shown that 72.42% of niclosamide was deposited in the liver, 18.79% in the kidney and 7.79% in the spleen. However, only about 3% of deposited niclosamide was detected in meat. This drug provides rapid and effective treatment of fish, completely eliminating the tapeworms.
