Standardized procedure to maintain Enteromyxum leei in vivo, in Sparus aurata and alternative fish species

Enteromyxum leei infection was successfully maintained in experimental facilities, in Sparus aurata and other fish. The utility of some freshwater species susceptible to infection and easy to culture (mainly Puntius tetrazona, Astronotus ocellatus and Danio rerio) to maintain infection in laboratory was demonstrated. Differences in susceptibility between fish species were detected
