Occurrence of the parasite Glugea hertwigi in young‐of‐the‐year smelt in Lake Tuusulanjärvi
Abstract:Young‐of‐the‐year smelt Osmerus eperlanus in Lake Tuusulanjärvi were examined for Glugea hertwigi cysts. Cysts were visible on smelt in the beginning of August and showed a peak at the end of August. Glugea hertwigi may cause mortality among the most heavily infected young‐of‐the‐year smelts.
