Ultrastructural description of a new myxosporean
parasite Kudoa aequidens sp.
parasites compromise fish and amphibian reproduction?
These fish are usually of good quality due to very low infection rate of Myxosporean
parasites common to the larger ocean-caught Pacific whiting (Kabata and Whitaker, 1985).
Parasitological examination: The cysts found in the infested fish were identified as a myxosporean
and by microscopic examination for the spores in the milky fluid inside the cysts.
During spore discharge, the invasion tube cinematographically resembles an extruding cnidarian nematocyst (Blanquet, 1983), a discharging capsule from a myxosporean
spore (Lom and Noble, 1984; El-Matbouli et al.
Ocurrence of myxosporean
parasites in the gills of two tilapia species from Lake Nokoue (Benin, West Africa): effect of host size and sex, and seasonal pattern of infection.
Parasites can cause soft flesh; myxosporean
parasites are known to cause soft flesh in Atlantic mackerel, Scomber scombrus (Levsen et al.
, the genus Henneguya Thelohan, 1892 is the most abundant in South America, with 29 known species.
Other long-lived parasites such as the myxosporeans
have been used in stock discrimination but were not included here because of a lack of abundance data.
