A review of the inter- and intraspecific variability in salmonid hosts to laboratory infections with Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg.
Bakke, T. A.
Host specificity tests in the laboratory have demonstrated that Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg can attach to and reproduce on species of Salmo, Salvelinus, Thymallus and Oncorhynchus. Inter- and intraspecific variations in host specificity and transmission capacity of G. salaris are described briefly. Shortened abstract.
