First record of an outbreak of saprolegniosis by Saprolegnia parasitica in Pseudochondrostoma duriense (Coelho, 1985) (Cyprinidae)(Aller-Gancedo et al., 2016)

An outbreak of saprolegniosis by Saprolegnia parasitica in the cyprinid fish Pseudochondrostoma duriense (Coelho, 1985) is described here for the first time. P. duriense is endemic to the Iberian Peninsula. Hundreds of sick and dead fish appeared in the River Bernesga (Spain). Skin and subcutaneous skeletal musculature were infected. Fish showed multi-focal dermatitis with loss of the epidermis, degeneration and necrosis of the skeletal muscle fibres, ulcerative keratoconjunctivitis and anterior uvitis.
