Resting spores of Ichthyophonus hoferi (50–230 μm in diameter) were found in the kidney, heart, liver, skeletalal muscles, exocrine pancreas, and connective and fatty tissues of young coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch from the Vilyuisky fish hatchery. In 10% of the fish, there were granulomas and giant cells in these organs. This is the first report of Ichthyophonus infection in Kamchatka.
