Ichthyophthirius multifiliis Fouquet, 1876, a ciliate protozoan, is a common cosmopolitan parasite of freshwater teleosts and is a recurring problem during the summer months on Australian rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum, 1792) farms. Preventative strategies include increasing water flow and filtration, but when an infection is established, chemical intervention is often required. Formalin (FOR) has been traditionally used on Australian trout farms as a treatment for I. multifiliis… CONTINUE READING
