Extrasporogonic stages of Sphaerospora sp. from the kidneys of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) were successfully transmitted via intra-peritoneal injection to naive Atlantic salmon and brown trout (Salmo trutta L.). Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum) could not be infected in this way. Transmitted extrasporogonic stages continued their development to form sporogonic stages and mature spores in the kidney tubules. Extrasporogonic stages, sporogonic stages and mature spores of the… CONTINUE READING
