From: Henneguya sp. in yellowfin goby Acanthogobius flavimanus from the San Francisco Estuary

Number of fish Total Mortality Histopathology End of study PCR Myxozoan prevalence (%)
Group 1 151 18 (11.9%) 10 a 123* 30/30** 100
Group 2 55 0 15 a 40* 15/15** 100
  1. aSections were variable for myxozoan spores but difficult to confirm for vegetative stages by histopathology.
  2. *Fish remaining at termination of the study at 1 month from which fish were randomly collected for PCR testing for presence of the myxozoan.
