This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Recorded the prevalence of Kudoa neurophila (a myxozoan parasite formerly known as Pentacapsula neurophila) in relation to age for hatchery reared Striped Trumpeter using histology and PCR testing. Histology and in situ hybridisation techniques were incorporated into the study of the histopathology of the disease caused by this parasite to elucidate its entry point on the fish host and migratory pathway to terminal stage sporulation.
Data is primarily fish health reports for hatchery reared striped trumpeter (Latris lineata), including issues relating to bacterial (vibrio), viral (particularly noda virus) and parasitic (parasitic copopods and kuoda) infections. Also included is information on the taxonomy and treatment of parasites.
This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Recorded taxonomy of copopod parasites and investigated potential treatments over the lifecycle of two parasites: caligus and condracantha, in hatchery reared Striped Trumpeter.
