Parvicapsula pseudobranchicola (Myxosporea) in farmed Atlantic salmon Salmo salar. Tissue distribution, diagnosis and phylogeny.

Abstract

Parvicapsula pseudobranchicola infections in farmed Atlantic salmon in Norway are associated with low-grade to significant mortalities. The parasite is found as mature spores in pseudobranchs, but has also been detected in the gills, liver and kidney. Diagnosis has relied on the detection of Parvicapsula spores, with the pseudobranch being the preferred… (More)
