Occurrence and Seasonality of Perkinsus marinus (Protozoa: Apicomplexa) in Mississippi Oysters
Oysters from four reefs in Mississippi Sound, sampled over a period of 25 months, were found to have a low prevalence of the protozoan parasite Perkinsus marinus. The greatest values were 80% prevalence, and 0.88 weighted incidence recorded for oysters from Biloxi Bay, Mississippi.
