Once more, I've been asked by Dr. Ed Noga at NCSU Vet School for live fish
with velvet. His group thinks that velvet consists of at least two kinds of
microbes, and that one or both may be an entirely different kind of parasite
than we currently believe. He need live velvet (on fish) so one part of the
team can fix skin or gill tissue and observe the bugs under the scanning
electron microscope, while the other part of the team uses PCR technology to
analyze the DNA and compare it with other things to establish relationships.
If anyone has velvet infected fish, please ship to me at my office to arrive
during a weekday, and I'll get the fish to Dr. Noga. Thanks.
