This report describes the results of an experiment to test the susceptibility of the New Zealand flat oyster, Ostrea lutaria, to infection with Bonamia ostreae, the causative organism of Bonamiasis in the European flat oyster, Ostrea edulis, when exposed in a known infected oyster bed. The results indicated that O. lutaria was susceptible to Bonamiasis and the pathological characteristics were identical to those in O. edulis .
