Hello in/out there

I am seeking information about the white spot parasite Ichthyophthirius 
multifilis which can infect fish.

Has anyone used molecular techniques to investigate strain discrimination 
of this protozoan?

Have studies been done of the host range or patterns of infection (I have 
very limited access to fish disease literature)?

Thank you for any assistance.
