Our research group at the Tasmanian Aquaculture and
Fisheries Institute has made an unexpected discovery that
has rewritten 20 years of research. A previously unknown
but related species of parasitic amoeba has been identified as the
cause of amoebic gill disease (AGD), a familiar problem troubling
Atlantic salmon aquaculture in Tasmania, Australia. The study, to be
published in the journal International Journal for Parasitology, is the
first to formally confirm the disease-causing agent of AGD.
