 en The sero-prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii check for this species in other resources in British marine mammals
Forman, Dan; West, Nathan; Francis, Janet & Guy, Edward


Serum samples from 101 stranded or bycatch cetaceans from British waters were screened for Toxoplasma gondii-specific antibodies using the Sabin Feldman Dye Test. Relatively high seropositivity was recorded in shortbeaked Delphinus delphis and this study presents the first documented case of Toxoplasma in a humpback whale Megaptera novaeangliae.
