Influence of water quality and temperature on adhesion of high and low virulence Flavobacterium columnare strains to isolated gill arches



Influence of water quality and temperature on adhesion of high and low virulence Flavobacterium columnare strains to isolated gill arches



Journal of Fish Diseases 22(1): 1-11



The ability of F. columnare (Flexibacter columnaris) to attach to the gills of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) was evaluated using a gill perfusion model. A comparison between a high and a low virulence strain of F. columnare was made and evaluated in comparison to results obtained previously with an in vivo model. The ion composition of the water of the organ bath in which the gills were suspended was varied and the influence on adhesion processes assessed.
