The life history of Ascarophis marina in Argentina is proposed on the basis of morphometric features of larval and adult specimens, as well as of trophic relationships among invertebrate and vertebrate hosts in the same geographic area. Adult and larval specimens of A. marina were found in the alimentary tract of the teleost fishes Parona signata (Carangidae) and Urophycis brasiliensis (Gadidae). Third-stage larvae ocurred in the shrimps Peisos petrunkevitchi (Sergestidae) and Artemesia longinaris (Penaeidae).
