The causative agent for gyrodactylosis is Gyrodactylus salaris (a small parasitic flatworm). Usually attacks Marble Goby and Common Carp. This parasite invades on the body surface only. Important: fishes with disease may show one or more of the signs below, but disease may still be present in the absence of any signs. On the pond or tank level, you may see the fishes scrubbing (rubbing against objects in response to skin irritation) and flashing (darting and twisting of fish and erratic swimming).
