Myxozoans of the genus Kudoa are widespread parasites of marine fishes and primarily infect the body musculature of their hosts. Although Kudoa species are not usually associated with host mortality, some do form macroscopic cysts in the tissue and some are associated with post mortem tissue degradation. This is of concern to commercial fisheries as fillets may be unmarketable due to these infections. Because different species of Kudoa have different effects on their hosts, it is important to… CONTINUE READING
