Other fish trypanosome specie like Trypanosoma murmanensis, have been reported to induce lethargy, anemia and changes in blood parameter in Atlantic cod, Gadus morrhua (Khan, 1977), longhorn sculpin, Myoxocephalus octodecemspinosis and three other marine fishes, Pseudopleuronectes americanus, Myoxocephalus scorpius and Myoxocephalus octodecemspinosis (Khan et al.
Trypanosoma murmanensis caused 65 % mortality in less than one year old Atlantic cod, Gadus morrhua (Khan, 1985).
Disease outbreaks and mass mortality in cultured Atlantic cod, Gadus morrhua
L., associated with Trichodina murmanica (Ciliophora).
On Martha's Vineyard, the guts were often salted and sold to commercial finfishermen for about a $1.00 a bucket, to be used as bait on trotlines (handlines laid on the bottom with spaced fish hooks) to catch Atlantic cod, Gadus morrhua
, and haddock, Melanogrammus aeglefinus, and also to bait eel pots.
The Serranidae were the second most abundant family, and of this family Epinephelus multinotatus formed 7.2%, Epinephelus chlorostigma 2.5%, and Epinephelus morrhua
2.5% of the total catch from the dropoff at Saya de Malha Bank (Table 1).
