Abstract

Amoebic gill disease (AGD) in marine cultured
Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., in Tasmania is
caused by the amphizoic protozoan Neoparamoeba
sp. after it attaches to the gills (Zilberg & Munday
2000). The disease is characterized histologically by
hyperplastic lesions resulting in lamellar fusion
often with the amoebae attached (Munday, Lange,
Foster, Lester & Handlinger 1993; Adams &
Nowak 2001, 2003). AGD is a significant problem
for Atlantic salmon growers in Tasmania and at
present is controlled by bathing in fresh water once
a presumptive diagnosis has been made (see review
by Munday, Zilberg & Findlay 2001).
