Susceptibility of Chinook salmon to M. cerebralis infection

Abstract: In order to investigate the influence of exposure age on susceptibility to M. cerebralis in Chinook salmon, we assessed infection and disease following experimental exposures at different ages and to different doses of triactinomyxons. This is summary data, raw data is submitted as a separate file. Data is presented as figures for clinical disease, infection prevalence, mean myxospore counts and lesion severity at 5 mo post-exposure for Chinook salmon and rainbow trout exposed to 1,0000 TAMS at 1-9 weeks post-hatch.

Purpose: These data were collected to clarify reported differences in susceptibility of Chinook salmon to M. cerebralis.
