Parasites of Freshwater Fishes in Cheju-do
Jo, Jae-Yoon ;
Journal of fish pathology, volume 3, issue 2, 1990, Pages 51~60
Parasites of freshwater fishes in Cheju-do were studied from May 1989 to April 1990, and incidence of infection in 16 fish species was reported. Protozoan parasites (Trichodina sp., Chilodonella sp., Ichthyophthirius sp., Vorticella sp., Myxidium sp., Myxobolus sp., Henneguya sp:, Ichthyobodo sp., and Trychophrya sp.), water mold (Saproregnia sp.), two monogenes (Dactylogyrus sp. and Gyrodactylogyrus sp.), Trematods, Cestods, Nematods, Acanthocephalas, parasitic copepods(Lernaea sp. and Pseudergasilus sp.) and a Hirudinea were recognized as freshwater fish parasites in Cheju-do. Trichodina sp. showed the highest infection rate (18.3%). Fifty seven individual fishes out of 311 were infected by this parasite. Nematods showed the second highest infection rate (13.5%). Dactylogyrus sp., Acanthocephalas, and Trematods showed the third (4.8%), fourth (4.2%), and fifth (2.6%) infection rate respectively. Of the 16 fish species Cryptocentrus filifer (Gobiidae) showed the highest infection rate. Nineteen fish out of 28 have Trichodina sp., and 14 fish out of 28 have Nematods. Those infection rates were 67.9% and 50.0% respectively. No parasites were collected from the fishes of Gwangryung vally, Dosoon-chun, Gangjeong-chun, and Hyodon-chun.

Experimental infection and histopathological study using a deleterious aquatic fungus (Saprolegnia diclina type I) were carried out in the eels (Anguilla japonica) to know what pathological changes the fungus would produce in the affected eels. The eels in group A and B which were treated with fish net were not susceptible to experimental infection. In group C which the cuticle was scraped by artificial treatment, the aquatic fungi were invading all the eel bodies including the desquamated lesions. Histopathologically, the affected eels were markedly reduced in number of goblet cells and showed moderate damage of the clavate cells. Nodular formation involving ecchymotic hemorrhage was seen in some affected areas. The eels survived to 25 days after experimental infection.
Ceroidosis of Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, due to the Oxidized Pellet and the Preventive Effect of Vitamin E and C addition

Tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, weighing 100g on average was fed on the oxidized pellet diets in peroxide value (POV) 102 meq/kg, with or without the vitamin mixture of C and E for 67 days. After administration of vitamin mixture for 67 days, the fish fed them displayed better growth than the fish fed oxidized pellet only. The fish fed low level of the vitamin mixture or the oxidized pellet retained visceral ceroidosis but did not show myopathy. But the fish administered high level of the vitamin mixture lossed macrophages disposing of ceroid in the viscera. Based on the results, the administration of vitamin mixture at high level was effective as prophylaxis for ceroidosis.
Effect of Gluathione on the Histopathological Changes Caused by Oxidized Diets in the Carp, Cyprinus carpio
Min, Eung-Shik ; Chun, Seh-Kyu ;
Journal of fish pathology, volume 3, issue 2, 1990, Pages 81~91
Nutritional ceroidosis accompanied with histopathological changes such as myopathy and visceral ceroidosis, was experimentally induced by feeding the oxidized feed with the peroxide value of 98meq/kg, to common carp resulting in some motalities of carp. To see the effect of treacetment survivors of the above fish were orally administered by feeding diets containing daily doses of 3mg and 6mg of glutathione per kg fish for 10 days or 20 days. While control and 3mg dosage group retained viscerral ceroidosis and showed evidence myopathy histo pathologically, the fish treated with 6mg of glutathione for 20days showed obvious reduction of macrophages of ceroid in the viscera.
