A Couple Cold Water Parasites

I’m not even sure what kind of fish these are on, but I spotted these two separate cases of fish parasites while diving in the PNW during my first visit. The first one is a little tough to spot, but look for the small isopod behind the fish’s gills. The second one is much more obvious with four different hook-worm like parasites crawling on this poor fish.
