  • Abstract The mechanism of resistance of rainbow trout to Cryptobia catostomi was studied in laboratory raised fish using the in vitro plasma incubation test. In this test a suspension of washed C. catostomi was incubated in freshly collected plasma for 3 hr at 4 C; after that, the mixture was examined for living C. catostomi . The plasma of six refractive fishes (goldfish, creek chub, hornyhead chub, rainbow trout, pike, and brown bullhead) had cryptobiacidal titers ranging from 1:2 to greater… CONTINUE READING
