Controlled exposure of fry to Myxobolus cerebralis through Triactinomyxons (TAMs)
Entry ID: MSU_5

Abstract: Rainbow trout and Chinook salmon fry were subjected to a controlled exposure of 200 and 2,000 triactinomyxons (TAMs) for two hours. After exposure, a subsample of Chinook salmon and rainbow trout fry were held for five months. A subset were sampled by PCR. A separate subset of each was analyzed with histopathology (lesion scores), and spore counts were completed.

Purpose: These data were collected as part of a larger study that investigated the potential effect of the whirling disease parasite on Chinook salmon in the Lostine River.
