Description of Trichodina hippoglossi n. sp. from farmed Atlantic halibut larvae Hippoglossus hippoglossus


, : Description of Trichodina hippoglossi n. sp. from farmed Atlantic halibut larvae Hippoglossus hippoglossus. Diseases of Aquatic Organisms 21(3): 209-214

A new species of Trichodina, T. hippoglossi sp. nov., collected from skin and fins of farmed Atlantic halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus from Bergen, Norway, is described and figured. Heavy infections were first evident after a temperature rise from 12 to 18 degrees C. The most heavily infected host specimens were easy to detect due to increased mucus production, which gave the larvae a greyish skin colour.

The provision of enriched Artemia as prey has been associated...
