Amyloodinium ocellatum is a parasitic dinoflagellate that infects warm water marine bony fishes and causes high mortalities in aquaculture settings. It has three life history stages: the feeding trophont, the reproductive tomont, and the infective dinospore.Amyloodinium ocellatum is a dinoflagellate that infects the gills and skin of both marine and brackish water fishes. The organism may be more closely related to a toxic algae than to the protozoans with which it has been grouped in the past. A similar organism, Oodinium spp., is found in freshwater fish.Amyloodiniosis is a disease that represents a major bottleneck for semi-intensive aquaculture, especially in Southern Europe ( 1 ). It is caused by one of the most common and important parasitic dinoflagellates in marine fish, Amyloodinium ocellatum (Brown).
Abstract Amyloodiniosis, caused by the dinoflagellate ectoparasite Amyloodinium ocellatum, is one of the most serious diseases affecting marine fish in warm and temperate waters. Current diagnostic.Read More

Amyloodinium ocellatum, the causative agent of amyloodiniosis (marine velvet, velvet disease), affects marine and brackish fish in various warm and temperate habitats.Read More
Amyloodinium ocellatum is an ectoparasite dinoflagellate of brackish and marine warm water fish worldwide. Amyloodiniosis can be a major threat for land-based and lagoon-type rearing sites causing a parasitic branchitis associated with high morbidity, mortality and significant economic losses (1, 4, 5).Read More
Amyloodinium ocellatum (an ectoparasitic dinoflagellate) is one of the most important pathogenic parasites affecting the culture of marine and brackish water fish The parasite produces a powdery or velvety appearance on infected fish, and the resulting disease is commonly referred to as “marine velvet,” velvet disease, or amyloodiniosis 15.Read More
A. ocellatum was successfully propagated on a fish gill cell line. In vitro infections were similar in cytopathology and development to those reported on natural hosts and large numbers of parasites could be produced. Exposure of parasites in cell culture to an antiprotozoal drug produced a dose-dependent inhibition of infectivity that was much more sensitive than a motility assay previously.Read More
