Identification of novel and zoonotic Cryptosporidium species in marine fish.

Abstract

Little is known about the prevalence and genotypes of Cryptosporidium in fish. The present study investigated the prevalence of Cryptosporidium species in cultured fingerlings (n=227), wild freshwater (n=227) and wild marine/estuarine species (n=255) of fish in Western Australia by PCR amplification at the 18S rRNA locus. Results revealed a low prevalence… (More)
