Abstract

A Piscirickettsia salmonis was isolated from the brain of a diseased coho salmon during an outbreak in Southern Chile. The isolate, AS-98, showed similar genetic, biochemical, serological and virulence characteristics to the type strain LF-89. The brain might represent an important residence site for P.salmonis.
