Background: Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, commonly known as Ich, is a highly pathogenic ciliate responsible for ‘white spot’, a disease causing significant economic losses to the global aquaculture industry. Options for disease control are extremely limited, and Ich’s obligate parasitic lifestyle makes experimental studies challenging. Unlike most well-studied protozoan parasites, Ich belongs to a phylum composed primarily of free-living members. Indeed, it is closely related to the model… CONTINUE READING
