Rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum, 1792 fingerlings were vaccinated by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection using live theronts of the skin parasitic ciliate Ichthyophthirius multifiliis Fouquet, 1876 at 2 temperatures (12 and 20 degrees C), and protection against challenge infections was subsequently evaluated by bath exposure to live theronts. Vaccination conferred a relative protection (evaluated as the decrease in the number of established theronts) at 12 degrees C and almost complete… CONTINUE READING
