Infection of rainbow smelt Osmerus mordax with the microsporidian Glugea hertwigi was diagnosed for the first time in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The prevalence of infection was 24%, 45 infected out of 187 examined fish captured in February and March 2009. Both large and small xenomas of G. hertwigi observed within the submucosa of the gastrointestinal tract and along the mesentery of the host contained only mature spores. Advanced and degraded xenomas associated with host reaction were… CONTINUE READING
