Abstract

Little is known about microsporidiosis pathogenicity in cetaceans. Here we report seroprevalence of 76% for microsporidia in blood samples from common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), from animals managed under human care (n=108) or captured for health assessments (n=13) and released.
