|Abstract||Diseases are an integral part of the existence of all animals including both cultured and wild fish populations. Diseases among cultured fish can cause death, poor growth and food conversion, increased production costs and interrupted production schedules. The main objective of this study was to construct a (basic) survival model to describe the transmission of Loma salmonae in a naive rainbow trout population. The microsporidian gill parasite, L. salmonae was chosen for this study because of its ability to multiply within infected hosts and to produce a fully protective immune response upon recovery of the host. Results showed that survival analysis appears promising as a new analytical tool for the description and quantification of L. salmonae transmission..|
