Abstract

The occurrence of intestinal infections due to microsporidia in European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) farmed in Italy is described. The infected fish showed emaciation and low growth rate associated with a low level mortality. Morphological, histological and molecular analysis suggest that the microsporidian is a member of the genus Loma.
