Simplified methods for the prolonged treatment of fish diseases

The prevention or control of epidemics of fish diseases by applying a disinfecting solution in a uniform concentration directly to the water supply of a fish pond or trough for a definite period of time has been exceedingly slow in development. In so far as can be determined, the original idea should be credited to. Marsh and Robinson (1910). In...

Notes on the effect of low temperature upon eyed eggs

The question has sometimes been raised whether or not any permanent injury may be inflicted upon fish eggs through their subjection to the relatively low temperatures prevailing in egg cases during shipment. This question may be argued in either direction purely upon the basis of indirect evidence which can be summoned in support of either...

Notes on Myxobolus inoratus, n sp, a Myxosporidian, parasitic in the black bass (Huro floridana, Le Sueur)

A largemouth black bass fingerling preserved in formalin was sent to the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries Pathology Laboratory at Seattle, Washington, during the autumn of 1937, by a hatchery employee at Miles City, Montana. The fish exhibited several wart-like protuberances on the caudal peduncle, which aroused the curiosity of Mr. H. C. Topel, in charge...

Disease prevention in the trout hatchery

With the comparatively recent evolution of fish hatching into true fish culture the problems offered by fish disease have likewise evolved from more or less of a petty annoyance into a first class headache.

Observations on Henneguya salminicola Ward, a myxosporidian parasitic in Pacific salmon

Henneguya salminicola was described in 1919 by Dr. H. B. Ward from cysts found in the body musculature of a silver salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch Walbaum) taken from the Stickeen River in southeastern Alaska. Ward described the cysts as “pyriform, fairly uniform in size, and hard to the touch. . . . The cysts measured 3 to 6 mm in diameter and...

Treat - think - and be wary, for tomorrow they may die

For some very strange reason it is easy to minimize the villian's role, played by disease-producing organisms, in the theater of modern fish culture. Much concern is felt over the food bills footed each month by the hatcheries, but very little is thought about the dead fish which are picked from the hatchery troughs during the same period.

Furunculosis in wild trout

Furunculosis, or as it has been more appropiately termed, "fish septicemia," is a disease primarily affecting salmon and trout. It is caused by the invasion and growth of Bacterium salmonicida Emmerich and Weibel, a Gram negative, non-spore forming, diplobacterium belonging to the family Bacteriaceae Cohn. After gaining entrance to the host,...

Founders of fish culture - European origins

Just where true fish culture appeared in history depends entirely upon what one considers fish culture to be. If the transportation of fishes from regions of plenty to those of few is to be regarded as fish culture - as it is by some even today - then this story should start in remotest antiquity and deal with an amazing series of failures....

A western type of bacterial gill disease

The first reference to a pathological condition of the gill tissues of salmonid fishes was made by Osburn in 1910. This author in describing a progressive infolding of the opercula of trout, commonly known to hatcherymen as "short gill covers," mentioned a marked proliferation on the gill epithelium as accompanying this condition. Osburn assumed...

The microscope in the hatchery

Without the aid of the microscope, it is safe to assume that fish Culture would now stand exactly where it did seventy-five years ago when methods of artificial fertilization were first applied. It is also safe to assume that the results from fish culture would be as unsatisfactory as they were at that time when the fishery resources were steadily...

The bacterial diseases of fish

Of all the diseases responsible for the losses in the hatchery, those caused by the microscopic one-celled organisms, the bacteria, are the most common and present the most serious problem to the hatcheryman. They are found at practically every trout and salmon hatchery during some period of the year. The symptoms of the diseases they cause are...

The protozoan diseases of hatchery fish

Following the somewhat bleak picture painted in the consideration of the bacterial diseases of hatchery fish in the last number of The Progressive Fish Culturist, it is a relief to turn to another large group of fish diseases caused by small, single-celled parasitic animals known as the protozoa. To the hatcheryman, the protozoan diseases of fish...
