|Abstract||Specific diseases identified from harvested wild baitfish (Notropis spp.) in Ontario included skin necrosis and/or 'tail-rot' caused by either saprophytic fungi (Saprolegnia spp.) or filamentous bacteria such as Cytophaga columnaris or C. psychrophila, furunculosis caused by Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida and large disfiguring tumour-like masses caused by maturing cysts of the myxosporidian protozoa Henneguya notropis. The advantages and disadvantages of commercial culture of baitfish are discussed briefly..|
