There is an error in the third and fourth sentences of the Abstract. There should be a full stop after Neobenedenia sp.. The correct sentences are: We infected individual, isolated, farmed barramundi, Lates calcarifer (Bloch) with a single oncomiracidium (larva) of the hermaphroditic monogenean Neobenedenia sp.. Isolated parasites reached sexual maturity at day 10 post-hatch (24°C, 35‰) and laid ~3,300 embryonated eggs over 17 days.

There is an error in the second sentence of the second paragraph in the Fecundity section of the Results. The n value is incorrect. The correct sentence is: Three fish challenged with multiple oncomiracidia (n = 10) were successfully infected with three, three and four parasites, respectively.

Both errors occurred when the manuscript was being typeset for publication. The publisher apologizes for these errors.
