In Japan, deep freezing has become a legal obligation to prevent infection with Kudoa septempunctata myxozoan
parasite in flounder and Sarcocystis fayeri protozoon parasite in horse meat.

Plant lectins prevented the infection of intestinal epithelium of Psetta maxima fish by the myxozoan
(2005) have described a new myxozoan
species, Henneguya rhamdia, discovered in the gills of R.
(2009), closed earthen ponds and multi-batch culture is a more favorable environment for dissemination of myxozoan
parasites in the catfish industry.
parasites are normally present in wild and captive fish.
This salamander was found to be infected with a myxozoan
fitting the description of Myxidium serotinum by Kudo & Sprague (1940).
Proliferative gill disease (PGD) caused by the myxozoan
parasite Henneguya ictaluri is one of the most devastating parasitic infections in channel catfish aquaculture.
These included one myxozoan
(Ceratomyxa sp.), eight digeneans (Anomalotrema koiae, Derogenes varicus, Hemiuris levinseni, Lecithaster gibbosus, Lecithophyllum botryophorum, Olssonium turneri, Podocotyle reflexa, and Progonus muelleri), two cestodes (Bothriocephalus scorpii, and Scolex pleuronectis plerocercoids), three nematodes (Anisakis simplex, Contracaecinea, and Hysterothylacium aduncum), and two copepods (Chondracanthus nodosus and Sphyrion lumpi).
spores consist of just 6 to 12 cells, not enough for taxonomists to promote these organisms from the kingdom Protista to the status of multicellular animals.

Organisms that were morphologically consistent with myxozoan
parasites detected in other frogs in Australia were found predominately within axons and were uncommonly present in vascular endothelial cells (3).
