The taxonomy of gyrodactylus monogenea parasitizing certain salmonid fishes of north america with a description of gyrodactylus nerkae new species



The taxonomy of gyrodactylus monogenea parasitizing certain salmonid fishes of north america with a description of gyrodactylus nerkae new species



Canadian Journal of Zoology 61(11): 2587-2597



Specimens of Gyrodactylus Nordmann, 1832, both newly collected and deposited type material, from cultured and wild salmonid fishes from various localities in North America, are compared and 5 spp. are recognized: G. salmonis Yin and Sproston, 1948 status emended, on Salmo clarki, S. salar, S. aguabonita, S. gairdneri, S. trutta, Salvelinus fontinalis, S. namaycush and Oncorhynchus kisutch from several localities throughout the continent; G. nerkae sp. nov. on O. nerka from Vancouver Island; G. colemanensis Mizelle and Kritsky, 1967 on Salmo gairdneri from California [USA], Arkansas [USA] and insular Newfoundland [Canada], S. fontinalis from Nova Scotia and Ontario, and S. trutta, S. namaycush and S. fontinalis .times. S. namaycush from Ontario; G. avalonia Hanek and Threlfall, 1969 on S. gairdneri from Nova Scotia; and G. brevis Crane and Mizelle, 1967 on S. gairdneri from California. G. salmonis, G. nerkae and G. colemanensis are considered specific to salmonid fishes; G. avalonia and G. brevis are considered accidental infections, acquired from nonsalmonid fishes. A diagnostic key to the 5 spp. is provided and gyrodactyliasis, as a disease of cultured salmonids in North America, is discussed briefly.
