Study on Marteilioides chungmuensis Comps et al., 1986 Parasite of the Pacific Oyster, Crassostrea gigas Thunberg
Park, Mi-Seon ; Chun, Seh-Kyu ;
Journal of fish pathology, volume 2, issue 2, 1989, Pages 53~70
An ovarian parasite, Marteilioides chungmuensis of the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas has been observed on several occasions in the Pacific sector of production of this oyster species(Matsuzato et al., 1977 ; Chun, 1979). This study was carried out on the specimens collected at Hwado, Och'
n, and Sinchang respectively located the southern, western, and eastern coasts of Korean Peninsula from 1986 through 1988 to investigate M. chungmuensis to the Pacific oyster. Uitrastructural studies were also carried out on infected oysters, to allow detailed examination of the structure and consepuently the systematic position of this parasite. Infection rates of M. chungmuensis at Hwado and Och'
n oyster farms were 5.3% and 4.2% each in 1986, 6.7% and 2.8% each in 1987, but they were not found at Sinchang oyster habitat. M,. chungmuensis-infected oysters were found from June to November at Hwado and from June to October at Och'
n. Twenty five of three hundred oysters transplanted from Sinchang to Hwado were found infected with M. chungmuensis. Some abnormal eggs infected with M. chungmuensis are liberated through the gill together with normal mature eggs on the spawning and the rest remain necrotized after spawning season. The earliest known stages consist of a stem cell or primary cell, including a secondary cell in which ovoid haplosporosomes are found. During sporulation, 2 or 3 secondary are produced by exogenous budding from the first secondary cell and, each secondary cell evolves into a sporont upon the tertiary cell differentiation (enodogenous budding) ; then, haplosporosomes are formed in the young sporont. Internal cleavages involve the differentiation of one tricellular spore per sporont. The outermost spore cell contains membrane-bounded osmiophilic bodies : the middle and the inner, most spore cells contain high density cytoplasmic ribosomes. The mechanism of spore formation from the stem cell of M. chungmuensis is the simplest of the class Paramyxea known up to now.
Ichthyophonus infection in Rock bream(Oplegnathus fasciatus)

Journal of fish pathology, volume 2, issue 2, 1989, Pages 71~74
Ichthyophonus disease had broken out among rock bream in Dec. 1989. Diseased-fish showed markedly stunted growth and darkish coloration, and anatomically the liver with small white nodules, tumefied spleen with its granulous surface, and the markedly tumefied kidney. Microscopic examination of liver, kidney, spleen and gill from 10 rock bream revealed cyst of the fungus Ichthyophonus sp. Rock bream were heavily infected with the highest concentrations of spherical multinucleate bodies in the liver, the spleen, the kidney and the gills. In heavily infected sectors of tissue a common necrotic zone was formed around spore aggregates. Spherical multinucleate hyphal terminal bodies developed thin hyphae longer than 1mm which divided into many branches.
A Morphological and Histopatholocial Study on Dactylogyrus sp. of Parasitizing of Cultured Sea bass, Lateolabrax japonicus
Sim, Doo-Saing ; Jung, Sung-Hee ; Chun, She-Kyu ; Park, Hyung-Sook ;
Journal of fish pathology, volume 2, issue 2, 1989, Pages 75~82
Dactylogyrosis due to Dactylogyrus sp. occured among cultured sea bass (Lateolabrax japonicus) in Geoje, Kyoung Nam Prefecture in July, 1988. Descriptions are given of the opisthohaptor, copulatory organ and also of the structures in Dactylogyrus sp.. Dactylogyrus sp. have one pair of minute anchor (length :
) and 14 larger hooks. Histopathological changes of the heavily infested gills are showed necrosis, epithelium of the gill filaments underwent hyperplasia with fusion of the lamellae and filamental clubbing. And a bacterial colony is invaded on the surface of lamellar epithelium.
Studies on Immuno-responses of Eel, Anguilla japonica-I. Serological Studies on Edwardsiella tarda
Park, Soo-Il ;
Journal of fish pathology, volume 2, issue 2, 1989, Pages 83~90
Edwardsiella tarda, the causative organism of Edwardsiellosis, was isolated from the water and the eel, Anguilla japonica of the recirculating eel culture ponds in 1988. E. tarda was always isolated from the water of eel culture ponds in the number of log 2.30~log 4.78 CFU/
without distinguishable seasonal characteristics. The counts of isolated E. tarda were changed with the health condition of the eel, i. e., a number of E. tarda were isolated from all checked organs, intestine contents, liver, spleen and kidney of the diseased eel, however, it was hardly isolated from spleen and kidney of the healthy eel. The isolates were classified according to o-agglutinating test into three serotypes (I, II, III). There were no distinct differences in the composition of the serotypes between intestine contents of eel and pond water samples(I, 52.4~53.3% ; II, 20.0~23.8% ; III, 4.8~6.7%). Serotype I was ascendant in the spleen(66.7%) and the kidney(73.7%) samples. By experimental challenge, most of serotype I proved highly virulent to eel in comparison with the other serotypes tested.
The Effects of Miyairi (Clostridium butyricum Miyairi II 588) on the Hematology and Growth of Cultured Fishes
Chun, Seh-Kyu ; Oh, Myoung-Joo ; Chung, Joon-Ki ;
Journal of fish pathology, volume 2, issue 2, 1989, Pages 91~98
The effects of Miyairi (Clostridium butyricum) on blood constituents and growth of cultured freshwater fishes, such as carp, tilapia and israeli carp were studied and then the following results were obtained : 1) All fishes produced the most efficient growth in 0.1% Miyairi-treated group. 2) Blood constituents of Miyairitreated group compared with those of contrul gruop showed no changes in RBCs. hemoglobin and hemato crit. and the increase in plasma protein and glucose. and the decrease in plasma cholesterol. 3) GOT level and GPT level in blood of Miyairi-treated group were almost equal to those in blood of control group.
Influence of Benzocaine as an Anaesthetic for the Grading of Tilapia

Anaethetics are needed for handling fish, especially for transportation, tagging and grading. Among them, MS-222 has been popular in aquaculture since it has an excellent anaesthetic effect. However, MS-222 is more expensive than other chemicals. Benzocaine (Ethyl-p-aminobenzoate) has a similar molecular formula and equivalent anaesthetic effect to MS-222, and is cheaper. The purpose of this study was first to compare anaesthetic effects (Benzocaine) under various conditions : temperature, concentration, pH and body weight. Second purpose was to compare actual anaesthetic effects at 50 ppm benzocaine at ambient temperature and pH for the grading of tilapia. The results of this study are as follows : 1. The effect of anaesthesia at
was better with low pH, that is 5.6 than high pH 6.6 and 7.6. 2. The anaesthetic effect was not different at different body weight form 11g to 1,350g. 3. The fish were anaesthetized in 4~10 minutes at 50 ppm benzocaine at temperature.
and pH 6.8~7.3 and recovered in 4~6 minutes when they were put back in the fresh water after 30 minutes anaesthesia. 4. Benzocaine was more sensitive at pH fluctuation than temperature. 5. Twenty four hour-TLm of Benzocaine was 50 ppm at
, pH 6.8 when the fish were put back in the fresh water after 120 minutes.
