Isolation of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus from muskellunge, Esox masquinongy (Mitchill), in Lake St Clair, Michigan, USA reveals a new sublineage of the North American genotype.
Viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus was isolated from muskellunge, Esox masquinongy (Mitchill), caught from the NW portion of Lake St Clair, Michigan, USA in 2003, suggesting its origin may have been from marine species inhabiting the eastern coastal areas of the USA or Canada. Expand
In Vitro Propagation of the Protozoan Perkinsus Marinus, A Pathogen of the Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea Virginica
The success achieved in culturing P. marinus will allow further investigations aimed at reducing mortalities caused by this important oyster pathogen and at addressing many unanswered questions about its biology and pathobiology. Expand
Emergence of Viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus in the North American Great Lakes region is associated with low viral genetic diversity.
The genetic diversity of VHSV in the Great Lakes region was found to be extremely low, consistent with an introduction of a new virus into a geographic region with previously naive host populations. Expand

The present study compared the susceptibility of representative Laurentian Great Lakes fish species to the emerging viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) Genotype IVb and found salmonids were the least susceptible to VHSV-IVb, while largemouth bass and yellow perch were the most susceptible.

Spatial and Temporal Distributions of Lake Whitefish Spawning Stocks in Northern Lakes Michigan and Huron, 2003–2008
ABSTRACT Adult lake whitefish were tagged and released from the Big Bay de Noc (BBN) and Naubinway (NAB) stocks in northern Lake Michigan, and the Detour (DET) and Cheboygan (CHB) stocks in northernExpand
Production of Serine Proteases by the Oyster Pathogen Perkinsus marinus (Apicomplexa) In Vitro
It was concluded that the P. marinus proteases in cell‐free culture supernatants are serine proteases. Expand
Emergence and resurgence of the viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (Novirhabdovirus, Rhabdoviridae, Mononegavirales)
Based on historical and current data, it is feared that VHSV will continue to mutate, expand to other geographic areas, and infect new host species, as a result, immediate international attention and coordination of efforts are needed. Expand
Spread of the Emerging Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia Virus Strain, Genotype IVb, in Michigan, USA
Findings underscore the complexity of VHSV ecology in the Great Lakes basin and the critical need for rigorous legislation and regulatory guidelines in order to reduce the virus spread within and outside of the Laurentian Great Lakes watershed. Expand
The Laurentian Great Lakes strain (MI03) of the viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus is highly pathogenic for juvenile muskellunge, Esox masquinongy (Mitchill).
The Great Lakes strain of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) isolated from adult subclinical muskellunge, Esox masquinongy (Mitchill), in Lake St. Clair, MI, USA was shown to be highly pathogenic through intraperitoneal injection and waterborne challenge. Expand
