The phylum Haplosporidia is a group of obligate protozoan parasites that infect a number of freshwater and marine invertebrates. Haplosporidian parasites have caused significant mortalities in commercially important shellfish species worldwide. In this study, haplosporidia were detected in Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas originating in Ireland and were subsequently identified independently in laboratories both in Ireland and in Spain as Haplosporidium nelsoni. In Ireland, H. nelsoni plasmodia… CONTINUE READING
