    Abstract

    This is the first report of an intestinal Eimeria infection in Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer) at the histopathological and ultrastructural levels. The Eimeria infection was often associated with severe pathology and significant mortality in the absence of other pathogens. This showed that it is an important disease of juvenile L. calcarifer in small scale nurseries in Vietnam. Heavy infection and high prevalence levels of the Eimeria infection are suspected to be linked to the low daily water exchange rates practised in these nurseries. Although systemic iridovirus infection was concurrently observed in some of the fish examined, it was not as consistently present in diseased fish as the Eimeria infection.
