Sample text

The fish can be removed from the container, the liquid can be decanted and fixed according to the objective of the study: in ethanol, formalin or both. An adequate method, depending on the size of the fish, is to fix half of the decanted liquid and sediments in formalin, for morphological studies, and the other half in ethanol, if the investigator is interested in DNA studies. In this case, and in the procedures described below, the final concentration for both methods of fixation would be about 45 % of formalin and 70-80 % of ethanol, respectively.

Salaris, a notorious pathogen of salmon in European waters, are apparently less pathogenic. In Europe, the species of Linguadactyla are known to provoke extensive epithelial hyperplasia and the epithelium overgrows the haptor, which fixes the worm in place (BYCHOWSKY 1957). These parasites feed on epithelial cells. A similar species, Linguadactyloides brinkmanni THATCHER & KRITSKY, 1983, has been found on a Brazilian ABLA Vol. 1 – Thatcher: Amazon Fish Parasites 45 Amazon food fish, Colossoma macropomum.
