Abstract

Saprolegia diclina and Saprolegnia ferax zoospores only infected dead trout eggs, in particular eggs sited downstream of the fungi. Susceptibility of dead eggs to infection appears to be associated with nutrient loss after shocking. Living and dead eggs were colonized by hyphae of both species although the saprophyte S. ferax was the more aggressive colonizer.
