The monogenean ectoparasite, Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg, 1957, has had a devastating effect on wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) since its introduction to Norway in the mid-1970s. In Lake Pålsbufjorden, southern Norway, upstream of the stretches of the River Numedalslågen with anadromous Atlantic salmon, a resident Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) population has been reported to be infected with G. salaris which is viable in the absence of its normal host, the Atlantic salmon.
