    Abstract

    Perkinsus marinus (Dermocystidium marinum) commonly known as "Dermo" is one of the causative pathogens for widespread mortalities in oysters. In the natural population of oysters at Tuticorin, oyster tissues cultured in fluid thioglycollate medium with dextrose fortified with antibiotics were found to be Infected with P. marinus. This is the first time that this pathogen has been reported from Indian waters. The incidence of infection in oysters ranged from 10 to 60%. The weighted incidence ranging from 0.05 to 0.35 indicates the very light level of Infection.
