Abstract

Previous studies on long-term gyrodactylid infections on isolated fish have shown that for the majority of Gyrodactylus–fish interactions, infection intensity peaks and then declines as the host mounts an effective immune response. In the current study, juvenile chub collected from the wild still harbored Gyrodactylus lomi infections after 6–10 mo in the laboratory despite being individually maintained at 12 C.
