occurrence of loma cf. salmonae in brook, brown and rainbow trout from buford trout hatchery, georgia, usa.during a 6 mo study of moribund trout from buford hatchery, buford, georgia, usa, a loma cf. salmonae microsporidian parasite was studied in the gills of brook trout salvelinus fontinalis, brown trout salmo trutta, and rainbow trout oncorhynchus mykiss. this parasite was morphologically similar to l. salmonae and l. fontinalis but differed in spore size. scanning and transmission electron microscopy demonstrated that xenomas were embedded in gill filaments. transmission electron micrographs prep ...19989891735
morphological and molecular confirmation of myxobolus cerebralis myxospores infecting wild‑caught and cultured trout in north carolina (se usa).we used microscopy and molecular biology to provide the first documentation of infections of myxobolus cerebralis (myxozoa: myxobolidae), the etiological agent of whirling disease, in trout (salmonidae) from north carolina (usa) river basins. a total of 1085 rainbow trout oncorhynchus mykiss, 696 brown trout salmo trutta, and 319 brook trout salvelinus fontinalis from 43 localities across 9 river basins were screened. myxospores were observed microscopically in pepsin-trypsin digested heads of r ...201729160217
