COLDWATER DISEASE

Definition

A chronic external and systemic bacterial disease of juvenile salmonids caused by Cytophaga psychrophila. The disease occurs during the low water temperature months (below 100C). Outbreaks resulting in catastrophic losses have been reported in yolk-sac fry. The disease is controlled by external and systemic antibacterials or by gradually transferring fish to warmer waters. Syn. peduncle disease.
