Abstract or Summary
  • Of 149 wild animals from two western Oregon river drainage areas and other localities in which "salmon poisoning" disease (SPD) is enzootic, including ten mammalian and two avian species, 79 harbored Nanophyetus salmincola, the SPD vector. The shorttail weasel, Mustela erminea; river otter, Lutra canadensis; spotted skunk, Spilogale putorius; Norway rat, Rattus norvegicus; domestic cat, Felis domestica; great blue heron, Ardea herodias; and hooded merganser; Lophodytes cucullatus, are natural hosts not previously reported. Most heavily infected were the raccoon, Procyon lotor, and spotted skunk which apparently are the principal natural definitive hosts. An opossum, Didelphis marsupialis, was infected experimentally for the first time. Six domestic mallard ducks, Arias platyrhynchos, 12 white Leghorn chickens, Gallus gallus, and two mountain voles, Microtus montanus, were refractory to laboratory infection.
