Main Author: Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale della Sicilia "A.Mirri"Coauthor: Costa, Antonella;Currò, Vittoria;Disclafani, R;Torina, Alessandra;La Cavera, Eleonora;Vicari, Domenico;D'Amelio, S.;Caracappa, SantoLanguage: inglese.Country: Italia.Publication: Records linked: ShowThesis: In recent decades, various episodes of mortality of cetaceans in different parts of the world occurred. During 2013 a further phenomenon of abnormal mortality of marine mammals in the Tyrrhenian Sea caused a massive stranding of cetacean especially dolphins and 37 animals were founded along the Sicilian coasts. The animals were brought to the Sicilian Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale to investigate about the probable cause of death. During the last few cases of massive stranding the mortality have been linked to viruses like morbillivirus concerning especially young subjects with an immune system not fully developed, or animals debilitated by non-viral agents including parasites that are considered among the primary causes of individual or massive stranding and mortality. This report describes the parasitological finding in cetaceans involved in the episode which has affected the Italian regions bordering the Tyrrhenian Sea. It could provide a contribute to the knowledge of parasitofauna of marine mammals in the Italian seas.Subject - Topical Name: Online Resources:Link al file List(s) this item appears in: IZS Sicilia - Poster

In recent decades, various episodes of mortality of cetaceans
in different parts of the world occurred. During 2013 a further phenomenon of abnormal mortality of marine mammals in the Tyrrhenian Sea caused a massive stranding of cetacean especially dolphins and 37 animals were founded along the
Sicilian coasts. The animals were brought to the Sicilian Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale to investigate about the probable cause of death. During the last few cases of massive stranding the mortality have been linked to viruses like morbillivirus concerning especially young subjects with an immune system not fully developed, or animals debilitated by non-viral agents including parasites that are considered among the primary causes of individual or massive stranding and mortality.
