Catastrophic losses of Atlantic salmon occurred in Norway in the s following the introduction of G. For scanning electron microscopy SEMsingle specimens of Gyrodactylus were subjected to full proteolytic digestion on 11 mm round glass coverslips to obtain tissue-free attachment hooks.

Although the hamuli roots in both species narrow after their union with the shaft, giving the anterior edge of the dorsal bar attachment point a small but distinct edge, this appears to be more prominent in G.

Unfortunately, the impact of such introductions to the ecosystem is currently unpredictable, and factors influencing the pathogenic-potential of Gyrodactylus spp. Gyrodactylus leptorhynchi is a small monogenean about 0. The remainder of the body was used for molecular analysis. The parasite is 0.


Together with two other species of Gyrodactylus from Europe, which are related by ITS rDNA, it forms a new marine species group, which has crossed the equator during its evolutionary history.

An alternative strategy towards the global systematics of the family Gyrodactylidae could be an extraction of well-supported monophyletic lineages based on their DNA, such as the nine lineages visible in present phylogeny, and their further supplementation by morphological characters, but leaving the genus Gyrodactylus as polyphyletic until all of its evolutionary lineages are resolved.

The gyrodacfylus with the highest similarity to our sequences were downloaded and the 5. Photographs of Gyrodactylus chileani n. The marginal hook sickles of these species were re-drawn from the paratypes and holotypes, where available, and a comparison of their morphology with G.

Ann Arbor, Michigan; New Zealand triplefin fishes Family Tripterygiidae: Rotenone poisoning of entire river systems was used, largely unsuccessfully, for many years, and now control measures involving heavy gyrodactypus aluminium dosing are being trailed in Norway.

The ecological risks of introducing Gambusia spp. All ten fish were infected but given the condition of the fish on collection, the intensity of infection can only be estimated at between parasites per fish. Given the ability of G. A comparison of soft body features suggests that the posterior pharynx bulb of G.
