Connection has been revealed between total protein content, succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) activity in hepatopancreas and intensity of Trematoda infestation in mollusks under different temperature. Intensification of infestation was shown to cause decrease of total protein content (by 11.67−36.01%) and increase of SDH activity (by 17.72−77.21%) as compared with control. As water temperature increased from 21 to 30°C total protein content in hepatopancreas of infested mollusks also increased, its maximal value was registered at 26°C. SDH activity in hepatopancreas of highly infested mollusks decreased as temperature increased from 21 to 30°C.
