  • A study was conducted to determine the prevalence, geographical distribution, and effects of a microsporan parasite, Loma branchialis, in Atlantic cod in coastal Newfoundland. The parasite was identified microscopically as opaque, ovoid xenomas, primarily in the gills, heart, and spleen. Although widely distributed in young fish inhabiting 7 coastal localities, prevalence was 1–7% in general, <0.01% in older and large fish, but 78% in market-size cod from a commercial farm. Some of the latter… CONTINUE READING
