In our contry, faculative parasite(ciliate) caused mass
motality in Aquaculture. the ciliate were tentatively identified as a
species of Uronema(Scuticociliatida). but i can`t find useful
information about this parasite. this parasitic ciliate is faculative
and I was failed artifical infection to fish(flounder) though many
trial were done by our labortory works . until now I can not
clarifying clue for infection mechanism of this parasite to host fish.
If any one have information to solve this problem, would you mind
teaching me.
