Investigating Whirling Disease Resistant Tubifex Tubifex
May 2003 - December 2007
- Montana State University
Laboratory and Field investigations were undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of using resistant Tubifex tubifex (an obligate host of the whirling disease parasite) to filter the myxospore life-stage of the parasite and to control production of triactinomyxon spores that could otherwise infect susceptible trout.
