Amyloodinium ocellatum was described by Brown (1931) and is one of the most important pathogenic parasites affecting the culture of marine and brackish water fish (Noga and Levy, 2006)
Diagnosis_Species: Amyloodinium ocellatum Brown 1931.Trophont spherical to oval (pear-shaped), average diameter 20-120 µm, attached to the gills by its narrow end, and are colourless and opaque. The parasite is attached to its host by means of a peduncle that ends by few rhizoids which penetrate the branchial tissues of the fish The A. ocellatum parasite responsible for premature fish loss is actually an algal protozoan and closely related to the dinoflagellates that cause red tides. ocellatum can completely wipe out an entire aquarium in the right conditions: poor nutrition, low water quality, improper life support equipment, and other stressors Cryptocaryon irritans (marine ich) and Amyloodinium ocellatum (marine velvet) are both parasites that uncommonly kill wild marine fish, but can wreak havoc on captive systems. I would like to address the latter parasite, as it often causes quick mortality of fish and is tough to diagnose AMYLOODINIUM OCELLATUM BASICS: Oodinium has been a fast moving killer in marine fish keeping for many years in the aquarium hobby. Oodinium is a parasitic dinoflagellate which can infect and kill many species of saltwater fish
Amyloodinium ocellatum is a dinoflagellate. Think of it as a type of single celled parasitic algae with two flagella that it whips to get around, with characteristics of both plants and animals. Its taxonomical designation is somewhat complex; botanists have preferred to call it an algae and in years past, zoologists have argued it is a protozoan Amyloodinium ocellatum is the only member of its genus and is a significant disease agent in marine aquaria and also aquaculture. Wild specimens are generally from tropical waters (23°C-27°C) making reef aquaria ideal breeding grounds. The host range of A. ocellatum is particularly broad, being able to infect almost any fish species, some. Marine ich, Velvet disease or Coral Fish disease is caused by an infestation of the flagellation Amyloodinium ocellatum. 1 A member of a large group of flagellate protists that are traditionally subdivided into two groups, the animal-like protozoa and the plant-like algae, Amyloodinium ocellatum belongs to the same group of single-cell alga organisms that cause red tides in marine waters . This parasitosis affects more than one hundred species of aquacultured fish, with fast and asymptomatic outbreaks that results in high morbidity and mortality in brackish and marine warm water fish
Amyloodinium ocellatum is a highly pathogenic dinoflagellate parasite with global distribution that causes high mortalities in the culture of tropical and sub-tropical marine and estuarine fishes. Diagnosis typically occurs through gross examination following the onset of morbidity, at which point treatment is of limited benefit Four species of parasitic dinoflagellates have been found to occur naturally on the gills and fins of Mississippi Sound fishes: Amyloodinium ocellatum (Brown 1931) Brown and Hovasse 1946, Oodinium cyprinodontum Lawler 1967, and two undescribed species. Sixteen of 43 species of fishes examined had natural gill infections of A. ocellatum The parasitic dinoflagellate Amyloodinium ocellatum (Brown, 1931) Brown and Hovasse, 1946 is a cosmopolitan ectoparasite that causes the velvet disease in several fish species and cause high mortalities. The infective stage of these parasites is motile dinospores. These stages attached to host cells give rise to the trophont growth stage Amyloodinium ocellatum (Brown 1931) Brown and Hovasse 1946, Oodinium cyprinodontum . Lawler 1967, and two undescribed species. Sixteen of 43 species of fishes examined had natural gill infections of . A. ocellatum. Seventy-one of 79 species of fishes exposed to .

Amyloodinium ocellatum was only found in the second sample, at a prevalence 100% and mean intensity 46.8 ± 3.4. The cause of fish mortality was possibly associated with a decrease in fish resistance after the first contact with monogenean parasites, allied with respiratory difficulty caused by the presence of A. ocellatum in the gills The ectoparasite protozoan Amyloodinium ocellatum (AO) is the etiological agent of amyloodiniosis in European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) (ESB). There is a lack of information about basic molecular data on AO biology and its interaction with the host. Therefore, de novo transcriptome sequencing of AO tomonts was performed. AO trophonts were detached from infested ESB gills, and quickly. Marine velvet disease is caused by the Dinoflaggelate organism Amyloodinium ocellatum.Dinoflaggelates belong to the kingdom protista, which is an odd mix of organisms containing single celled organisms, such as Amoeba, and, of more interest to reef keepers, Cyryptocarrion irritans (the cause of marine white spot). Amoeba and Cyryptocarrion fall into the groups within the protista that have. Amyloodinium ocellatum What is Amyloodinium ocellatum? Amyloodinium ocellatum (abbr. A.ocellatum) is a marine dinoflagellate. While most marine dinoflagellates (small protozoan organisms) exist as free living members of the planktonic community, some such as A. ocellatum live at least a portion of their life cycle as parasitic organisms

Amyloodinium ocellatum, a dinoflagellate which causes one of the most serious diseases of warm water marine aquaculture. 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.The organism is a dinoflagellate ectoparasite and has been reported in a wide range of marine. The Life Cycle of Amyloodinium ocellatum. Free-swimming cells called dinospores are released from a mature cyst and go in search of a host fish. Typically these cells can survive seven to eight days without a host, but in lower tank temperatures at around 75-80 degrees, some strains may last up to 30+ days Ecological and morphological features of Amyloodinium ocellatum occur- rences in cultivated gilthead seabream Sparus aurata L.; a case study J.C. Pereira, I. Abrantes. The causative organism, Amyloodinium ocellatum (formerly Oodinium ocellatum) is found in all oceans, and is very common on wild and newly-collected fishes, including sharks and rays. Death from infection may occur within a day of symptoms (e.g. fast breathing), detection. Amyloodiniumiasis has been identified as a source of mass mortalities. These proteins were lethal to Amyloodinium ocellatum, which is one of the most important parasitic agents affecting fish. Antibiotic concentrations as low as 12·5 μg/ml were inhibitory. Activity was directed against the trophont (feeding) stage of the parasite, while the disseminative (dinospore) stage was unaffected..

The potential for using nauplii of brine shrimp Artemia salina to remove the dinoflagellate Amyloodinium ocellatum from aquaculture systems for red drum Sciaenops ocellatus was investigated. Dinospor.. Amyloodinium ocellatum is a euryhaline dinoflagel- late that parasitizes a wide range of estuarine and marine fishes (Lawler 1980, Lauckner 1984). The para- sitic stage (trophont) feeds on host epithelia1 tissues of the skin and gills for up to several days, after which it detaches from the host and forms a dividing cyst. The ectoparasite protozoan Amyloodinium ocellatum (AO) is the etiological agent of amyloodiniosis, of which the European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) is one of the many susceptible species.The lifecycle of Amyloodinium ocellatum is direct and triphasic and can be completed in less than a week provided the environmental conditions are favorable (optimal temperature range 24-28 °C)

Amyloodinium ocellatum is a dinoflagellate that infects the gills and skin surface of both marine and brackish water fishes. The disease caused by these organisms has been presented to as velvet, rust and gold dust disease because of the shiny luster that the parasite give to heavily infected fish 1,2 A. ocellatum was propagated by serial passage in Amphiprion ocellaris and hybrid striped bass (Morone chrysops × Morone saxatalis). Each 25-50 mm fish was exposed to 4000-6000 dinospores in 400 ml of artificial seawater for 30 min. 2 days after exposure, trophonts were harvested by immersing the fishes in fresh water. After encystment, tomonts were axenized by multiple washes with sterile.. Aiello, P. and D'Alba, A.

The life cycle of Amyloodinium follows a three-stage growth model, maturing from a feeding trophont to a reproducing tomont, before becoming a free-swimming dinospore that attaches to a new host fish This article is part of WikiProject Marine life, an attempt at creating a standardized, informative, comprehensive and easy-to-use resource on marine life.If you would like to participate, you can choose to edit this article, or visit the project page where you can join the project and/or contribute to the discussion.This project is an offshoot of the WikiProject Tree of Life
The diversity of parasites was limited to three protozoan species, Amyloodinium ocellatum (Dinoflagellida), Ambiphrya ameiuri (Peritricha), Cryptobia branchialis (Bodonida: Kinetoplastida), and two metazoans, the monogeneans Gyrodactylus olsoni and G. imperialis. Both A. ocellatum and A. ameiuri infested fish fro Amyloodinium ocellatum, a common dinoflagellate ectoparasite of marine fishes, 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. ectoparasitic protozoa is Amyloodinium ocellatum,a dinoﬂagellate which causes one of the most serious diseases of warmwater marine aquaculture. As aquaculture has developed worldwide, Amylo-odinium has caused increasing losses in many species and is often the most important disease limiting warmwater marine aquaculture (Noga & Levy, 1995) Our bullet proof conditioning process helps reduce the possibility of introducing the following parasites and pathogens: Marine Ich (cryptocaryon irritans), Marine Velvet (Amyloodinium ocellatum), Brooklynella (Brooklynella hostilis), Uronema (Uronema marinum), as well as flukes, worms, and internal pathogens
Amyloodinium occellatum is an extremely prolific and devastating dinoflagelate fish parasite, which infect gills and, less frequently, the skin of host fishes. Since there are some controversy on the existence of one or more strains of this parasite, in this work, a molecular characterization and phylogeny of parasites collected in several locations, along the south of the Iberian peninsula.
