The presence of the same parasitic taxa has already been reported for other species of the superfamily Solenoidea (for Ensis macha with trematode parasites, see Orellana & Lohrmann 2015; for Solen marginatus with Marteilia
2015) and recently Marteilia
refringens (Grijalva-Chon et al.
1998) and resistance to Marteilia
sydneyi in Sydneyrock oyster, Saccostrea glomerata (Nell and Perkins, 2006) have been successfully introduced.
There are connotations of crime shows such as CSl as the 'suspect' is Marteilia
Diseases that must be notified by commission country members include the mollusc diseases Bonamiaostreae; Bonamia exitiosa; Marteilia
refringens; Mikrocytos mackini; Perkinsus marinus; Perkinsus olseni; and Xenohaliotis californiensis, plus the crustacean diseases Taura syndrome; White spot disease; Yellowhead disease; Tetrahedral baculovirosis (Baculovirus penaei);
New South Wales Fisheries, the state agency responsible for the industry, believes the disease is caused by the parasite Marteilia
In the 1970's outbreaks of QX disease caused by the haplosporidian parasite Marteilia
sydneyi (Perkins and Wolf, 1976) led to a further decline (Nell, 1993).
Effects of infection by the protistan parasite Marteilia
refringens on the reproduction of cultured mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis in Galicia (NW Spain).
refringens is a protozoan of great concern to the mollusk aquaculture, mainly in Europe, as it is responsible for the Aber disease that causes mass mortalities in Ostrea edulis.
At present, the fishery is mostly inactive as a result of a biological kill caused by the protozoan parasite Marteilia
previously unknown in this part of the Atlantic, and the appearance of which is not believed to have been associated with harvesting levels or techniques (Moyer et al(1)).
The protozoan parasite Marteilia
refringens infects the European flat oyster Ostrea eclulis.
