Abstract

The detrimental effect of Cryptocaryon irritans exhibiting a host specificity on several marine fish broodstock is described in this study. The parasite caused considerable mortalities on gilthead seabream, Sparus aurata, common dentex, Dentex dentex, and greater amberjack, Seriola dumerili, while red porgy, Pagrus pagrus, white sea bream, Diplodus sargus, sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax, and sharpsnout sea bream, Diplodus puntazzo, remained unaffected. Chemical treatments were not found to be effective against the intense parasitosis and only extended, rapid and repeated hyposalinity measures seemed to minimise fish losses.
