Postrelease Hooking Mortality of Rainbow Trout Caught on Scented Artificial Baits
Abstract The postrelease mortality of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss caught on scented artificial baits was compared with postrelease mortalities of rainbow trout caught on traditional artificialExpand
Application of Household Disinfectants to Control New Zealand Mudsnails
Abstract The New Zealand mudsnail Potamopyrgus antipodarum was recently discovered in Colorado, thereby expanding its invasion of the western United States. This exotic snail may invade streamsExpand
Effects of Multiple Stressors on Morbidity and Mortality of Fingerling Rainbow Trout Infected with Myxobolus cerebralis
Abstract Myxobolus cerebralis, the causative agent of salmonid whirling disease, has been implicated in year-class losses of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss in several rivers in Colorado. TheExpand
Inheritance of Myxobolus cerebralis Resistance among F1-Generation Crosses of Whirling Disease Resistant and Susceptible Rainbow Trout Strains
Abstract A whirling disease resistant domestic strain of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (German (GR)) was crossed with a susceptible wild strain of rainbow trout (Colorado River (CR)). Thirty-twoExpand
Gill Ectoparasites of Juvenile Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout in the Upper Colorado River
Abstract During 1996 and 1997, 112 rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss and 204 brown trout Salmo trutta, all young of the year, were sampled from a 40-km study area of the upper Colorado River and wereExpand
Whirling Disease Behavior and Its Relation to Pathology of Brain Stem and Spinal Cord in Rainbow Trout
Abstract A long-standing assumption about whirling disease is that the whirling pattern of swimming is caused by disequilibrium due to parasite-induced damage of the auditory–vestibular apparatus orExpand
The effects of Myxobolus cerebralis on the physiological performance of whirling disease resistant and susceptible strains of rainbow trout.
The development of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss strains that are resistant to whirling disease has shown promise as a management tool for populations in areas where Myxobolus cerebralis isExpand
Genetic basis of differences in myxospore count between whirling disease-resistant and susceptible strains of rainbow trout.
We used a quantitative genetics approach and estimated broad sense heritability (h2b) of myxospore count and the number of genes involved in myxospore formation to gain a better understanding of howExpand
Survival and Reproduction of Myxobolus cerebralis-Resistant Rainbow Trout Introduced to the Colorado River and Increased Resistance of Age-0 Progeny
Myxobolus cerebralis caused severe declines in rainbow trout populations across Colorado following its introduction in the 1980s. One promising approach for the recovery of Colorado’s rainbow troutExpand
