Dinoflagellates are common and often important parasites of aquatic organisms, but their developmental cycles are poorly known and have not been established in in vitro culture. The parasitic dinoflagellate (Hematodinium sp.) associated with mortality of the Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) in British waters has been cultivated in vitro in 10% foetal calf serum in a balanced Nephrops saline. In culture the parasite undergoes a characteristic cycle of development. Circulating sporoblasts… CONTINUE READING
