Abstract
    Epizootics of the holotrichous ciliate, Cryptocaryon irritans , have impeded monoculture of red snapper, Lutjanus campechanus , at the Florida Department of Natural Resources facilities in St. Petersburg, Florida. Cryptocaryoniasis was associated with most mortalities and was controlled only in one group of red snapper being conditioned for induced spawning. An effective treatment regime which has prevented recurring Cryptocaryon infections included hypersalinity, quinine hydrochloride, chloroquine, and minimal handling.
