It is concluded that K. iwatai is an Indo-Pacific species that, in the Red Sea, has extended its host range to include the allochthonous gilt-head sea bream, European sea bass, and grey mullet and is apparently native to the region.
Cryptocaryon irritans Brown 1951, the cause of ‘white spot disease’ in marine fish: an update
Although first described 60 years ago, only within the last decade has detailed information emerged concerning its life cycle, transmission and pathogenesis concerning C. irritans.
Evolution of Mycobacterium ulcerans and Other Mycolactone-Producing Mycobacteria from a Common Mycobacterium marinum Progenitor
Comparisons of pMUM and chromosomal gene sequences demonstrate that plasmid acquisition and the subsequent ability to produce mycolactone were probably the key drivers of speciation among MPM.
Evidence for widespread distribution of piscidin antimicrobial peptides in teleost fish.
Piscidin-immunoreactive cells were most common at sites of pathogen entry, including the skin, gill and gastrointestinal tract, which strongly suggest that piscidins are a widespread and important component of many fishes' defense against disease.
Mycobacterium marinum Infections in Fish and Humans in Israel
Israeli Mycobacterium marinum isolates from humans and fish were compared by direct sequencing of the 16S rRNA and hsp65 genes, restriction mapping, and amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis, ruling out the local aquaculture industry as the source of human infections.
A systemic mycobacteriosis in the European sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax cultured in Eilat (Red Sea).

Livoneca sp. (Flabellifera: Cymothoidae), an isopod parasite in the oral and branchial cavities of the Red Sea silverside Atherinomorus lacunosus (Perciformes, Atherinidae)
This host-parasite relationship appears to be species-specific and has all the characteristics of an evolutionary process of adaptive strategy, as it clearly enables the host to maintain its feeding ability while the parasite grows to sexual maturity.
Aspects of the biology of Cryptocaryon irritans, and hyposalinity as a control measure in cultured gilt-head sea bream Sparus aurata
- A. Colorni
- Environmental Science
The life cycle and halotolerance of Cryptocaryon imitans were studied and a certain degree of resistance to C. irritans invasion was observed in fish that had survived several infections.
THE PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIP OF PFIESTERIA PISCICIDA, CRYPTOPERIDINIOPSOID SP. AMYLOODINOUM OCELLATUM AND A PFIESTERIA‐LIKE DINOFLAGELLATE TO OTHER DINOFLAGELLATES AND APICOMPLEXANS

The taxonomic relationship between heterotrophic and parasitic dinoflagellates has not been studied extensively at the molecular level. In order to investigate these taxonomic relationships, we…
