Abstract Juvenile brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) were experimentally infected with a Loma salmonae variant to assess its infectivity within a range of salmonid species. The study shows that after infection with an inoculum of L. salmonae spores derived from naturally infected Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha), xenomas formed in brook trout and Arctic charr, indicating a high infectivity of L. salmonae in species of Silvalinus. However, L. salmonae showed low virulence towards rainbow trout and Atlantic salmon..
