Disease and health management in Asian aquaculture.
Taxonomical study into two new species of Philometra (Nematoda: Philometridae) previously identified as Philometra lateolabracis (Yamaguti, 1935).
Molecular comparison of ITS2 rDNA between P. lateolabracis and P. madai supported the morphological conclusion that the two nematodes obtained from different fish species should be assigned to different species.
Two species of parasitic copepods (Caligidae) new to Japan
Two species of parasitic copepods (Siphonostomatoida: Caligidae), Caligus sclerotinosus Roubal, Armitage & Rohde, 1983, and Lepeophtheirus longiventralis Yü & Wu, 1932, parasitic on spotted halibut Verasper variegatus (Temminck & Schlegel), are redescribed based on material found on their respective hosts cultured in Japan.
Parasitic diseases of cultured marine fish in Japan
Future efforts to control marine infections should be directed not only to chemical treatments, but also to biological measures, and to prophylaxis and quarantine through parasite detection and early diagnosis.
Reproduction and growth of Neobenedenia girellae (Monogenea: Capsalidae), a skin parasite of cultured marine fishes of Japan.
Under laboratory conditions at 25°C, the monogenean Neobenedenia girellae rapidly developed on Japanese flounder, and it took 15-17 days from egg to maturation and showed a high level of egg output, compared with other benedeniine species.
