Nephrocalcinosis of Rainbow Trout (Salmo gairdneri Richardson) in Freshwater; a Survey of Affected Farms
Nephrocalcinosis in cultured rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) has been described by a number of authors since Wunder (1967); most recently by Harrison and Richards (1979). Landolt (1975) and others have compared nephrocalcinosis with visceral granuloma of brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), and suggested that the two diseases may be species variants.
