Abstract

A total of 961 harvested and 241 unharvested moose ( from throughout Sweden were examined for the central nervous system and skeletal muscles were searched for adult nematodes, and lungs and feces were examined for first-stage larvae. The parasite was distributed throughout Sweden with highest prevalence (56%) in the central region and lowest in the south (13%). Prevalence was highest in calves and old moose (>9 years) and lowest in middle-aged animals (5 difference between sexes, although prevalence trended higher in young males.

These results indicate the importance of continued surveillance of intermediate mollusk hosts and possibly cause increased infection of moose.Alces alces) carcasses and partsElaphostrongylus alces from 1985 to 1989.
