Kudoa yasunagai is a cosmopolitan parasite that infects the brains of various marine fishes, including important aquaculture species. We developed a quantitative PCR assay to detect K. yasunagai in sea water, and we used it to monitor abundance of the parasite in the environment and in culture… CONTINUE READING
