Kudoa is a protozoan parasite that infects the muscle of many marine fishes, including salmon. Heavy infections have been linked to soft texture in commercial species, leading to lower market value. This report presents the proceedings of a workshop held to bring together scientists and salmon farmers to learn about Kudoa and to develop a coordinated approach to finding solutions. The first day of the workshop considered the science and technology of Kudoa issues and the second day was devoted to salmon farming experiences. Topics of individual presentations included interactions between Kudoa and Pacific whiting, detection of fish tissue parasites, Kudoa in farmed Atlantic salmon, epidemiology of the soft-texture syndrome, mitigation of Kudoa, and the pathology of Kudoa infection.
