Characteristic heart lesions primarily involving the myocardium are reported in natural outbreaks with associated mortality. To date, no experimental trials have reproduced these lesions in the laboratory. The present study reports on the first successful experimental transmission of CMS in Atlantic salmon in Scotland, with full development of the histological lesions that are described for the… CONTINUE READING
