Amoebioses include a range of diseases caused byamoebae. Amoebae belong to a heterogeneous group ofprotozoans common in water and soil. While amoebaehave been isolated from various organs of fishwith no clinical signs, they can be pathogenic and causeamoebioses under particular conditions (Lom andDyková, 1992). Those amoebae are either endocommensalsor free-living before they become parasitic.Amoebic infections can be difficult to diagnoseand, as a result, amoebic diseases have been mostlikely under-reported. However, some amoebioses cancause significant losses in the aquaculture industry(Nowak et al., 2014).
