Recent reports of toxoplasmosis in marine mammals raise concern that cold-blooded marine animals are a potential source of Toxoplasma gondii infection. To examine the transmissibility of T. gondii to fish, we observed the development of T. gondii tachyzoites inoculated into oviduct epithelial cells of goldfish (Carassius auratus) microscopically in vitro. Further, the survival period of tachyzoites inoculated into goldfish muscle was bioassayed in mice and through PCR analysis. In cell cultures… Expand
Detection of toxoplasma antibodies in sera of Salmonidae by ELISA
TLDR
Whether toxoplasmosis has a role in Salmonidae infection, which is the most common seafood in Shahrekord district, and it is believed that Salmonidae may be susceptible to primary T. gondii infection, is believed. Expand
Uptake and transmission of Toxoplasma gondii oocysts by migratory, filter-feeding fish.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both northern anchovies and Pacific sardines can filter T. gondii oocysts out of seawater under experimental conditions and remained infectious inside the fish's alimentary canals for at least 8h post-exposure. Expand
Temperature is a key factor influencing the invasion and proliferation of Toxoplasma gondii in fish cells.
TLDR
In vitro T. gondii invasion and replication showed a temperature-dependent relationship in infection and proliferation rates, which suggests that temperature- dependent infection determines the differences in the capability of T. Gondii to infect cold- and warm-blooded vertebrates. Expand
The zebrafish, Danio rerio, as a model for Toxoplasma gondii: an initial description of infection in fish.
TLDR
The pattern of infection observed was similar to that found in mammalian infection, with parasites developing in the somatic muscle, heart, liver, spleen, kidney, and brain. Expand
Serological evidence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in Melanosuchus niger (Spix, 1825) and Caimam crocodilus (Linnaeus, 1758)
TLDR
Serological evidence is provided that Brazilian alligators may be exposed to T. gondii and further studies should be performed to elucidate whether alligators are natural hosts of this ubiquitous protozoan parasite. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii in edible fishes captured in the Mediterranean basin
TLDR
The results here reported suggest that fish species sold for human consumption can be accidentally involved in the transmission route of the parasite in the marine environment and that the risk of foodborne transmission of toxoplasmosis to fish consumers should be further investigated. Expand
Molecular Detection of Toxoplasma gondii in Native Freshwater Fish Cyprinuscarpio in Wasit Province Iraq
DNA of total 96 samples of (24) muscle, (24) liver, (24) enteric and (24) gills of native freshwater fish Cyprinuscarpio was extracted by Genomic DNA purification kit and tested using Real timeExpand
Potential Risk of Three Zoonotic Protozoa (Cryptosporidium spp., Giardia duodenalis, and Toxoplasma gondii) Transmission from Fish Consumption
TLDR
The present review gives an overview on these three zoonotic protozoa in order to understand their potential presence in fish and to comprehensively revise all the evidences of fish as a new potential source of Cryptosporidium spp. Expand
Are poikilothermic animals real hosts for Toxoplasma gondii?
TLDR
The presence of T. gondii in aquatic and terrestrial poikilothermic animals, which may be important elements in the transmission of the parasite, is discussed. Expand
Qualitative risk assessment of impact of Toxoplasma gondii on health of beluga whales, Delphinapterus leucas from the Eastern Beaufort Sea, Northwest Territories

Molecular and bioassay-based detection of Toxoplasma gondii oocyst uptake by mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis).
TLDR
It is hypothesise that filter-feeding marine bivalve shellfish serve as paratenic hosts by assimilation and concentration of infective T. gondii oocysts and their subsequent predation by southern sea otters is a source of infection for these animals. Expand
SURVIVAL OF TOXOPLASMA GONDII OOCYSTS IN EASTERN OYSTERS (CRASSOSTREA VIRGINICA)
TLDR
Examination of the long-term survival of T. gondii in oysters and how efficient oysters were at removing oocysts from seawater indicates that T.Gondii can survive for several months in oyster and that oysters can readily remove T. Gondii oocyst from seaw water. Expand
Cryptosporidium parvum is not transmissible to fish, amphibians, or reptiles.
TLDR
Viable C. parvum oocysts, infectious for neonatal BALB/c mice, were delivered by gastric intubation to bluegill sunfish, poison-dart frogs, African clawed frogs, bearded dragon lizards, and corn snakes and it appears that C.Parvum was not heterologously transmitted to lower vertebrates. Expand
Sporulation and Survival of Toxoplasma gondii Oocysts in Seawater
TLDR
Results indicate that T. gondii oocysts can sporulate and remain viable in seawater for several months. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii, Neospora caninum, Sarcocystis neurona, and Sarcocystis canis-like infections in marine mammals.
TLDR
To the knowledge, this is the first report of N. caninum antibodies in any marine mammal, and the first reported of T. gondii antibodies in walruses and in ringed, bearded, spotted, and ribbon seals. Expand
Removal of Toxoplasma gondii Oocysts from Sea Water by Eastern Oysters (Crassostrea virginica)
TLDR
The results indicate that T. gondii oocysts can be removed from seawater by eastern oysters and retain their infectivity. Expand
Cryptosporidium parvum: an attempt at experimental infection in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss.
TLDR
A study on rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss fed with a commercial feed contaminated with bovine-isolated Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts found large numbers of 5-7-microm spherical structures located deep within the epithelial tissue increased remarkably under conditions of host stress. Expand
Toxoplasmosis in beluga whales (Delphinapterus leucas) from the St Lawrence estuary: two case reports and a serological survey.
TLDR
Serum samples were collected from 22 beluga whales stranded between 1995 and 1998 on the shores of the St Lawrence Estuary and examined for antibodies to T. gondii by the modified agglutination test, finding antibody titres of s25 in six (27%) of the animals. Expand

TLDR
Four S. chinensis necropsied in Queensland in 2000 and 2001 were found to be infected with toxoplasmosis, and it is uncertain how these dolphins became infected and further studies are needed to determine. Expand
