Megalocytiviruses have been associated with epizootics resulting in significant economic losses in public aquaria and food-fish and ornamental fish industries, as well as threatening wild fish stocks. The present report describes characteristics of the first megalocytivirus from a wild temperate North American fish, the threespine stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus. Moribund and dead fish sampled after transfer to quarantine for an aquarium exhibit had amphophilic to basophilic intracytoplasmic… CONTINUE READING
