The present study is a part of a continuous investigation of myxosporean parasites-infecting fish of the Red Sea using light and electron microscopy. Out of 120, 80 (67%) Pagrus pagrus fish were found to be naturally infected with Kudoa pagrusi. The infection was intensive and appeared as clusters of ovoid to ellipsoidal plasmodia being restricted to the cardiac muscles. Histological studies elaborated tissue distortion at the sites of infection and the adjacent layers. The development of the… Expand
