In 2015, rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, weighing 4 ± 0.5 g) mortalities occurred at an aquaculture facility near the "Nevado de Toluca" National Park in Mexico. Affected fish showed exophthalmia, body darkening, abdominal distension, and pale gills. Pure culture, splenic isolates were recovered and biochemically-And PCR-identified as Flavobacterium psychrophilum. These isolates were virulent, representing a potential threat to O. mykiss aquaculture. This is the first study to identify and characterise F. psychrophilum as causative of a severe disease outbreak in Mexico-farmed 0. mykiss.
